The Balvenie collaborates with Royal Selangor to celebrate craftsmanship with a Collector’s Box

This collector’s box is extremely exclusive with only 15 sets available in both Malaysia and Singapore.

The Balvenie and Royal Selangor have come together for the first time ever to create an ultra-exclusive collector’s box and selection of gift packs, in celebration of both brands’ shared passion and respect for time-honoured craftsmanship.

Craftsmanship and maintaining the brand’s original intention is important to brands like The Balvenie — since its establishment in 1892, they’ve continued to be the only distillery in the Scottish Highlands that maintains the Five Rare Crafts of whisky-making.

Similar to The Balvenie, Royal Selangor is devoted to the art of expertly honed craftsmanship. The world’s biggest pewter manufacturer houses more than 250 skilled craftspeople and a 40-strong in-house design team that come together to celebrate the art of pewter making.

It is an honour to partner with Royal Selangor at a time when the world around us is automating, and true craftsmanship is becoming a rare commodity. We truly value those who share the same dedication, passion and heart for craft as we do at The Balvenie.
Brett Bayly, The Balvenie’s Regional Brand Ambassador for Malts in Southeast Asia

Bayley continues, “This collaboration represents our time-honoured craftsmanship over generations and we are proud to have produced one of the finest bespoke collector’s boxes to house our unique top range whiskies.”

Each of the ultra-limited edition Collector’s Box comes with an exclusive set of rare single malts by The Balvenie, housed in a handsome, high-grade walnut wood box made lovingly by an artisan from Royal Selangor. The box, which takes up to six days to finish, is complete with a gorgeous piece of handmade pewter that’s finished with Royal Selangor’s signature hand-hammered design as well as a unique serial number.

There’s a catch — only 15 sets are available across Malaysia and Singapore beginning today.

Three of The Balvenie’s signature malts can be housed in the box, and collectors and connoisseurs can choose from The Balvenie expressions which are 30 years and above, with a minimum value purchase of £41,800 (approx. RM229,000) to complete their custom limited edition collector’s box.

We are excited to work on this debut bespoke collector’s box with The Balvenie. Collaborating with a partner that places just as much emphasis on craftsmanship, it was only fitting that we chose to use Royal Selangor’s signature hand-hammered finish.
Chen Tien Yue, Executive Director of Royal Selangor

We get it — not all of us will be able to grab our hands on the limited edition collector’s box. For the rest of us, there are gift packs that feature a selection of the 12 Year Old DoubleWood, 14-Year-Old Caribbean Cask and 17-Year-Old DoubleWood single malt that’ll pair with an intricately handcrafted pewter based whisky glass.

The gift packs will be available from January 2021 onwards at Cold Storage, TMC, Mercato, AEON, Maxvalu, Jaya Grocer, Village Grocer@Tropicana, Tesco, and Sunshine.
