Pernod Ricard has launched the first website for its Scotch whisky brand Royal Salute, with "striking" visuals which, the company says, is designed to emphasise the brands prestigious and luxury status.

Launched in English, the website will soon be available in its key market languages; Chinese, Korean and Japanese.

The site focuses on the heritage of the brand, with information on Royal Salute's history since its launch as a tribute to Queen Elizabeth II on her coronation in 1953.

Also on the website will be information on how Salute is blended and packaged, with news on events taking place around the world.
