Raise your glass

Christmas shoppers desperate for a gift for the one who already has everything might be desperate, especially since the 25th is just around the corner. Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is pleased to present a limited edition Cocktail ‘basket’ designed to satisfy the needs of customers who want to relax with something more than the traditional glass of champagne.

Life may be about the journey, but we can all make time for the finer things on the way. Inspired by the launch of Dawn, the Rolls-Royce Cocktail Hamper is the British carmakers most sociable accessory to date. With only 15 to be made, it’s also one of their most exclusive.

Everything they create at Rolls-Royce combines an equal measure of beauty and practicality. The same is true for the limited edition Rolls-Royce Cocktail Hamper. Expertly handcrafted from aluminium, carbon fibre, walnut and leather, the hamper contains everything needed to create and enjoy your favourite cocktails with friends.

As with their motor cars, the detail of each item has been meticulously thought through, from the fine cotton napkins, to the American walnut muddler, to the laser-cut cocktail strainer, engraved with our ‘RR’ monogram.

The enjoyment of a fine cocktail is undeniably enhanced by the quality of your glass. To create the unique glassware for the limited edition Cocktail Hamper, Rolls-Royce commissioned the world’s most renowned glassmaker and supplier of many of Europe’s Royal Courts, Theresienthal. Since 1836, their craftspeople have followed their time-honoured technique of blowing glass into beech wood moulds to guarantee an exceptionally smooth finish. Each glass is topped with a platinum halo.

Whether your guests prefer a classic Negroni or something more experimental, you’ll find a selection of the finest cocktail recipes in the Rolls-Royce Cocktail Collection. The collection is made in partnership with two experts from the Dorchester Collection’s London hotels, The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane.

Finally, the basket comes with a glass tray that is discreetly housed under the integrated wooden cutting board, so drinks are presented to guests in consummate Rolls-Royce luxury.

Unfortunately, the cocktail kit is available in a very limited number, the British car manufacturer only makes 15 copies. Of course the cocktail baskets fit perfectly in the Ghost, Dawn and Phantom. As we have come to expect from Rolls-Royce, this exclusivity comes with a hefty price tag, for over £26,000 (around €30,000) this cocktail bar can be yours – and alcohol is not included. Come into the beautiful world of Rolls-Royce.
