Bottle One of Royal Salute 50 year old whiskey has just been sold in New Zealand for a little over £17,000/US$30,000. Only 255 were produced in 2003 to celebrate the anniversary of the Queens coronation. It also marked the 50th birthday of the Royal Salute whisky brand.

Making this even more special though is that the bottle was initially presented to Sir Edmund Hillary on the 50th anniversary of his joint ascent of Mt Everest with Tenzing Norgay. It was brought back by its producers - Chivas Brothers - with the proceeds going to the Himalayan Trust for development work in Nepal.

The special batch of 50-year-old Royal Salute whiskies were distilled before 1953 and laid down in warehouses to mature, until they were married in a single cask in 1993 and bottled 10 years later. There is a tasting note at whisky
