Fabergé releases Emerald Isle whiskey set

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co has collaborated with luxury jeweller Fabergé to create a seven-piece set that includes a 30-year-old bottling.

The Emerald Isle Collection has been created by The Craft Irish Whiskey Co and Fabergé

The Emerald Isle Collection was created to celebrate the ‘seven wonders of Ireland’, and comes with two bottles of 30-year-old Irish whiskey.

The 30-year-old single malt Irish whiskey has been aged in 200-litre first-fill American oak casks, which previously contained Bourbon. The whiskey was then finished in a single 40l pedro ximénez Sherry barrel.

Alongside the whiskey, each set includes a Fabergé Celtic Egg, handcrafted by fourth generation Fabergé enamel workmaster Dr Marcus Mohr. Made from 18k yellow gold, the eggs are set with a diamond Celtic knot that frames a coloured gemstone at its centre.

The sets also feature a bespoke Fabergé Altruist 18k rose gold timepiece. Hand crafted by Fabergé workmaster André Martinez, the pieces feature a self-winding movement and unique dial, inspired by the landscape of one of the Seven Wonders of Ireland.

Josina von dem Bussche-Kessell, global sales and business development director at Fabergé, said: “This is a thrilling partnership for Fabergé, 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 Fabergé to participate in such a cross-pollination of luxury sectors, thereby adding a contemporary twist on age old traditions.”

Each Emerald Isle Collection set features a bespoke Fabergé Celtic Egg

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

The collection will be launched at a private auction in Houston, Texas, tomorrow (2 February).

The Craft Irish Whiskey Co has pledged 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each set to charity. The company will donate 50% to the Correa Family Foundation, which supports children affected by serious illness, and the remaining 50% will be donated to a charity chosen by the buyer.
