Rolls-Royce is more than just a luxury car manufacturer. The British company’s Bespoke design offshoot is known to create a number of mouthwatering items, including Phantom Luggage and an elegant Champagne Chest. The latest fabrication may just be its best yet – a deluxe Cellarette Cigar and Whiskey Box with a price tag of £44,150 ( roughly $51,040 USD).
“Combining Rolls-Royce’s engineering pedigree and long-standing dedication to creating the ultimate entertaining experiences – a Cellarette chest to help celebrate every momentous occasion,” declares Rolls-Royce’s website. Who are we to disagree?
The Cellarette is made from polished aluminum and features Havana leather on the exterior, adding a touch of opulence alongside handcrafted detailing. Handblown low-ball crystal glasses etched with the Rolls-Royce double R logo are hidden below the fold-up tray covered in Obsidian Ayous open-pore veneer inlaid with the Spirit of Ecstasy. In other words, this is one sumptuous cigar and whiskey box.
At one end of the case is the humidor, crafted from refined Spanish cedarwood, which has a distinctive hygrometer gauge designed to resemble the iconic Phantom gallery clock. There’s also a cigar cutter from S.T. Dupont found inside a leather-trimmed compartment. For those not into inhaling smoke into your lungs, this feature is replaced by snack bowls for those non-smokers. At the other end is room for your favorite bottle of whiskey.
There’s no doubting this is one hell of an impressive creation but for $51,040 you could buy a vintage Rolls-Royce or two. You can even splash more cash if you want to add your own specifications to give the Cellarette Cigar and Whiskey Box a personalized touch.
This is an item for those with money to burn, and while way out of my price range, if I had the dosh to pick one up I wouldn’t think twice about it.
