Only 150 bottles of this exclusive timeless collector’s item will be released globally. Each piece is unique and handcrafted in every sense – presented in a hand-blown crystal glass decanter, hand engraved, hand numbered and finished with the number 50 in 18-carat gold lettering.

It is housed in a copper-lined Scottish oak box,
