Aimed at the Asian market, 62 Gun Salute will be the flagship product in the Royal Salute range. It is produced from whiskies aged for a minimum 40 years and packaged in bottles created by Dartington Crystal.

It is not a limited edition and, whisky stock and demand permitting, Pernod aims to produce 5,000 bottles per year.
