The Craft Irish Whiskey Co has unveiled The Emerald Isle Collection in partnership with Fabergé.

The inaugural launch of these highly limited boxes has set the world record for the world’s most expensive whiskey collectors’ set at $2million USD.

The Emerald Isle Collection takes the crown as the oldest triple-distilled Irish whiskey in the world, comprising a seven-piece custom-made whiskey set which celebrates the ‘Seven Wonders of Ireland’.

Presented in a dark walnut experience box, each set features a bottle of ultra-rare, single cask, 30-year-old, triple-distilled single malt Irish whiskey, accompanied by two unique and exclusive creations from Fabergé – the first-of-its-kind Fabergé Celtic Egg and bespoke 1/1 Fabergé watch.

Each collection also includes a humidor with two limited edition and sold out, ultra-rare Cohiba Siglo VI Grand Reserva (2009) cigars, as well as 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 same region where the whiskey was made.

‘The Emerald Isle Collection’ fuses Fabergé’s unique heritage with rich Irish tradition and mythology, as well as the distinctive flavours of an ultra-rare whiskey, in a highly collectable and unique special-edition, legacy bottle.

Inspired by the shape of an emerald, each collectors’ box represents the natural beauty of Ireland, and features an illustration of one of the ‘wonders’ of Ireland and its geographical coordinates. The hand-crafted whiskey bottle containing the ‘liquid gold’ – a collector’s item in its own right, features a design inspired by the Imperial Fabergé Hen Egg from 1885.

All bottles of whiskey are accompanied by a bespoke Fabergé Celtic Egg. Each egg is handcrafted from 18k yellow gold and features Fabergé’s legendary guilloché enamel in a pastel green; the green, white and gold colours of the egg symbolising the Irish flag. Within the egg is a rough, uncut Gemfields Zambian emerald the first time Fabergé has ever featured an uncut gemstone as the egg’s surprise.

In addition to the whiskey and one-of-a-kind Fabergé Celtic Egg, each box features another ultimate collector’s item – a bespoke 1/1 Fabergé Altruist 18k rose gold watch. Each individual piece has a unique dial, inspired by the landscape of one of the ‘Seven Wonders of Ireland’.

“We are absolutely thrilled to have set a world record, for the second time in three months, with the launch of ‘The Emerald Isle Collection’,” says Jay Bradley, Founder, The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. “At The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. we share the same brand vision as Fabergé – to strive to create timeless beauty and a lasting legacy, faithful to heritage, which also embraces new methods.”

Bradley adds: “Collaborating with Fabergé has been a tremendous experience and together we have created an extraordinary bespoke set that truly celebrates Ireland, its craftmanship and unique heritage.
