The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. has collaborated with Fabergé to release The Emerald Isle Collection, a seven-piece custom-made whiskey set to celebrate the ‘seven wonders of Ireland’. This $2 million offering set is presented in a dark walnut experience box that contains a unique Fabergé Celtic Egg objet and bespoke Altruist 18k rose gold timepiece, along with two bottles of extremely rare, 30-year-old, triple distilled Irish whiskey.
There are seven boxes in total. Housed in a handsome walnut box, inside each experience box, that has been inspired by the shape of an emerald, is a hand-crafted whiskey bottle which holds the ‘liquid gold’. Each of the bottles has been inspired by key Fabergé design elements, garnished with responsibly sourced emeralds from Gemfields’ Kagem mine in Zambia on the neck and lowermost part of the bottle.
The whiskey set also includes a bespoke Fabergé Celtic Egg objet. Handcrafted by fourth-generation Fabergé enamel workmaster, Dr. Marcus Mohr. Each egg was forged from 18k yellow gold and features the brand’s iconic hand-painted guilloché enamel, along with a diamond-encrusted Celtic knot and two colored gemstones. Each one also features a different gemstone on its exterior: Gemfields Zambian emerald, blue sapphire, Gemfields Mozambican ruby, amethyst, rhodolite, spessartite or tourmaline, representing each of the seven Irish locations.
The stunning egg contains uncut Zambian emerald responsibly sourced from Gemfields and presented on a gold guilloché base with an intricate claw setting, collectors can turn into a piece of custom jewelry.
The second item is a one-of-a-kind Fabergé Altruist timepiece with a self-winding movement from Vaucher Manufacture. Handcrafted by Fabergé’s workmaster André Martinez, each one of the 18k rose gold designs sports a unique dial that again pays tribute to the Seven Wonders. The crystal case backs on each piece are dedicated to The Craft Irish Whiskey Co. and feature their logo.
The launch of these highly limited boxes took place via a private auction on 2nd February 2021. All proceeds will be split equally between the Correa Family Foundation and a charity of the collector’s choice. Discover Opulent Club on Apple News.
