The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and Fabergé collaborate on luxury collection

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. has collaborated with Fabergé to release The Emerald Isle Collection, a seven-piece custom-made whiskey set to celebrate the 'seven wonders of Ireland'.

Each set comes presented in a dark walnut 'experience box' and features two bottles of ultra-rare 30-year-old triple-distilled Irish whiskey, accompanied by two unique creations from Fabergé: the Celtic Egg objet and bespoke Altruist timepiece.

Each collection will also include a humidor with two rare Cohiba Siglo VI Grand Reserva cigars, a gold-plated cigar cutter, gold-plated water pipette, pure obsidian whiskey stones, a hip flask with a sample of the Emerald Isle whiskey, and a carafe filled with Irish spring water from the region where the whiskey was made.

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. has pledged 100 per cent of the proceeds from sales of The Emerald Isle Collection sets to charity. The launch of the boxes takes place in a private auction house in Houston, Teax on 2 February 2021.

It is the second release from the Craft Irish Whiskey Co. following its limited 333-bottle run of The Devil's Keep, a 29-year-old triple-distilled single malt whiskey, in November 2020.

The Emerald Isle's single malt whiskey has been aged in 200-litre ex-Bourbon casks and finished in a single 40-litre Pedro Ximénez sherry barrel.

In the luxury collection sets, the Fabergé design team, along with Jay Bradley and Tiago Russo, founder and design director at the Craft Irish Whiskey Co. respectively, worked to pay homage to seven iconic Irish locations that hold a certain mystical or mythological interest.

Jay Bradley said: "We are more than delighted to be partnering with prestigious atelier Fabergé to launch The Emerald Isle Collection, which is an extraordinary bespoke set, and will truly put ultra-rrare luxury Irish whiskies on the map. Fabergé 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-old whiskey, which was already going to be a particularly sought-after collector's item."

Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, global sales and business development director at Fabergé, said: "Rare whiskey has seen tremendous investor attention and the whiskey market is undergoing a dynamic evolution. It is very exciting for Fabergé to participate in such a cross-pollination of luxury sectors, thereby adding a contemporary twist on age-old traditions."
