Royal Brierley Kilda
New to Royal Brierley in 2017 is the small Kilda Range. Designed for lovers of wine and spirits, the collection includes a decanter
. The rounded body is hand decorated with a diamond pattern which extends from the base to three quarters up the vessel. For a touch of glamour, the Decanter has a stainless-steel neck collar and the stopped has a unique mouth blown bubble. Named after St Kilda, the remotest part of the British Isles, it lies 41 miles (66 kilometres) west of Benbecula in Scotland's Outer Hebrides. St Kilda is not a single island but an archipelago consisting of four islands. The largest of the islands, Hirta, has been continuously occupied for over two millennia and boasts the highest sea cliffs in the British Isles. Although the population is never thought to have exceeded 180 at any time it is now just occupied by a variety of conservationists and scientists, the resident population was evacuated in 1930. Another unique achievement by St Kilda is that not only was it inscribed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site in 1986, but in July 2005, in further recognition for the islands cultural heritage, it became one of only a few places in the world with Dual World Heritage Status for both its natural and cultural significance. How does living on an isolated island grab you? This is the kind of question which should be best pondered holding a fine whiskey poured from the beautiful Kilda decanter. I already have my list of who I would take with me, I just don’t know if he would want to come. I’ll will have to tempt him with beautiful Royal Brierley glassware and Sky Sports!
