Diamond Jubilee John Walker and Sons

Distiller John Walker & Sons has bottled 60 crystal decanters of Diamond Jubilee Blended Scotch Whisky to mark the Queen’s 60 years on the throne.

The grain and malt whiskies have been maturing in a marrying cask of English oak from the Queen’s Sandringham Estate since 1952.

The amber liquor is presented in lead crystal decanter adorned with a Britannia silver collar, featuring a half-carat diamond set by hand, and a numbered seal.

It also comes with a pair of hand-engraved lead crystal glasses and a leather-bound, hand-embellished artifact book.

Diamond Jubilee By John Walker and Sons

Sixty bottles of the Diamond Jubilee by John Walker & Sons were bottled on February 6, 2012, exactly 60 years to the day since the Queen took to the throne.

One will be gifted to the Queen and the other 59 crystal decanters will be sold around the world for £100,000 ($160,000) each.

All profits from the sale will be donated to the Queen Elizabeth Scholarship Trust, with a guarantee of £1 million. The trust offers scholarships and mentorship programs to support traditional craftsmanship.
