GLENFARCLAS PAGODA SAPPHIRE RELEASE

The Glenfarclas Pagoda Sapphire Reserve joined the critically acclaimed Pagoda Reserve Trilogy, comprising some of the finest and rarest whiskies on the planet today. Available in two editions, Limited Edition Silver and Collector’s Edition Gold, this was the first time that we had created glassware featuring precious sapphires. The front age statement on each decanter is embedded with 36 sapphires to construct the number 63, to highlight the age of the whisky.  A staggering 11,000 sapphires were ordered and only those sapphires that were matching in size, and a dark blue rather than light blue colour, were individually selected to compliment the blue crystal stopper and specially created metallic blue colour applied to the engravings on the sides.

The Glenfarclas Pagoda Series takes its inspiration from the pagoda style kiln invented by Charles Doig more than 130 years ago. Intricate Chinese Guardian lions are featured on the sides of the Pagoda Sapphire Reserve decanter and are deeply engraved and infilled with a carefully selected rich dark blue colour to match the blue crystal Pagoda shaped stopper. The solid silver and gold plated collars of the two editions are both individually numbered with a unique design.
