What do you get the Rolls-Royce owner who has everything? How about a £26,000 cocktail hamper that fits in the boot of the luxury cars built in Warwick? Rolls-Royce has revealed the ultimate Christmas gift for its select band of owners, but buyers will need deep pockets and a bit of luck to get their hands on the 15 limited edition cocktail hampers.
The company, which has previously insisted its competition is not other luxury cars but high-price yachts and private jets, asked its designer, Sina Maria Eggl to consult with experts from upmarket London hotels, The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane, to create the extravagant hamper.
Priced at £26,336, the hampers take eight weeks to be carved from American walnut wood and include platinum-rimmed glasses that are hand-blown over the course of a month by Theresienthal, glass-maker to many of Europe’s royal families.
The leather-clad hamper includes handmade decanters, a cocktail shaker, ice bucket, knife, bottle opener, food containers, glass serving tray and a chopping among its extensive inventory.
It even comes with a cocktail recipe book and tools including a jigger, muddler, crusher, atomiser and strainer.
Gavin Hartley, Head of Bespoke Design, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, says: “This beautifully executed Cocktail Hamper illustrates the marque’s intimate understanding of the desires of the most discerning patrons of luxury in the world; Rolls-Royce customers.”
Rolls-Royce drivers with a spare £26,000 can order one of the hampers from the Warwick-based brand’s 130 worldwide dealerships.
