The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. & Faberge Comes Up With The Most Varied And Deluxe Whiskey Gift Set
The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. has taken the concept of collectable whiskey to a whole new level with the release of an exclusive set. The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. is teaming up with Faberge for one of the most varied and deluxe gift set 'The Emerald Isle Collection', a seven-piece custom-made whiskey set to celebrate the ‘seven wonders of Ireland’.
The limited set is homage to "The Seven Wonders of Ireland", and is built around two bottles of the distillery's 30-year-old triple-distilled Irish whiskey. The whiskey itself will feel just as valuable to avid collectors. The 30-Year-Old single malt has been matured in an ex-bourbon barrel before being finished in a rare Pedro Ximenez sherry barrel. Those hoping to collect this rather than drink it will be delighted to find a sample of the liquid in a bespoke hip flask.
And that's just where the set begins, as owners will also receive a bespoke Faberge Celtic Egg handcrafted from 18K yellow gold and its signature guilloche enamel. The seven eggs feature a different gemstone on their exterior, making each one genuinely unique. Inside, there is a rough uncut Zambian emerald responsibly sourced from Gemfields, presented on a gold guilloche base with an intricate claw setting.
The Gift set also other item a Faberge Altruist 18K rose gold timepiece with a self-winding movement from Vaucher Manufacture. Each dial is unique to that timepiece, echoing the gemstone found on the Celtic egg that pays tribute to the Seven Wonders theme.
The collection even includes a humidor with two ultra-rare Cohiba Siglo VI Grand Reserva cigars, a gold-plated cigar cutter, gold plated water pipette, pure obsidian whiskey stones and a carafe filled with Irish spring water from the same region where the whiskey was made.
Jay Bradley, Founder of The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. commented on the collaboration: “We are more than delighted to be partnering with prestigious atelier Faberge to launch ‘The Emerald Isle Collection,’ which is an extraordinary bespoke set, and will truly put ultra-rare luxury Irish whiskies on the map. Faberge is an iconic brand with an enduring legacy that continues to evolve and knows no bounds, so we cannot think of a better collaboration for a luxury whiskey from Ireland.
"This is simply a dream come true for me and the team–and an unbelievable elevation for a 30-year whiskey, which was already going to be a particularly sought-after collector’s item. With the Faberge addition, there is surely nothing that compares for the ultimate aficionado.”
Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, Global Sales and Business Development Director at Faberge, said: “This is a thrilling partnership for Faberge, as it sees us continuing our legacy of creating unique and collectable objects, bridging the gap between historic legacy and modern-day heirlooms. Rare whiskey has seen tremendous investor attention, and the whiskey market is undergoing a dynamic evolution. It is very exciting for Faberge to participate in such across-pollination of luxury sectors, thereby adding a contemporary twist on age-old traditions.”
Seven sets will be available at auction starting this week, with prices starting at $2 million each.
