The bottle, courtesy of The Whisky Exchange owner Sukhinder Singh, was opened in a ceremony on 14 March at the five star H15 Boutique Hotel in Warsaw, Poland, in the presence of a Notary Public.

Wealth Solutions is the originator of the Spirit Watches line, which seeks to build “extraordinary watches with drops of unique alcoholic beverages inside”. For its latest project, the Whisky Watch, the company has partnered with Swiss independent watch brand Louis Moinet.

So far, the company, in cooperation with different independent Swiss watchmakers, has released the Cognac Watch, containing a drop of “the world’s oldest Cognac”, Gautier 1762; and the Rum Watch, containing a drop of “the world’s oldest rum”, Harewood 1780.

Seperately, Wealth Solutions partnered with Italian manufacturer Montegrappa to launch a fountain pen containing a drop of Gautier 1762.

The opening ceremony was attended by Charles MacLean, whisky expert and Master of the Quaich; Edward Bates, Bureau National Interprofessionnel du Cognac educator; Jean-Marie Schaller, founder and creator of Louis Moinet; Michal Kowalski, deputy president of Wealth Solutions; and Lukasz Baranowski, deputy president of Wealth Solutions.

International subscription for the Whisky Watch, due in April, has opened online: en.wealth.pl/our-projects/whisky-watch-2
