Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is delighted to present a limited edition Cocktail Hamper, conceived to meet the needs of customers who wish to relax and enjoy something a little beyond the traditional glass of Champagne.

This elegant vision is realised through a marriage of hallmark Rolls-Royce attention-to-detail and remarkable craftsmanship. The designer behind its creation, Rolls-Royce Accessories Designer Sina Maria Eggl, consulted with experts from Dorchester Collection’s London Hotels, The Dorchester and 45 Park Lane, to ensure the Hamper is perfectly appointed to cater for a vast selection of classic and contemporary cocktails.

The Hamper itself is meticulously hand-crafted over a period of eight weeks from American Walnut Wood and the finest Natural Grain Leather that adorn the interior of some Rolls-Royce motor cars.

On opening the Navy Blue leather-bound lid, the customer is presented with every necessary accoutrement required to create and enjoy the perfect cocktail. Each implement is a bespoke, hand-made creation designed to combine beautiful aesthetics with practicality, ensuring effortless use. Indeed, the notions of effortlessness and supreme luxury inform everything about the design. The paring knife, for example, is magnetically housed in a recess hewn into the American Walnut structure thereby ensuring it is stored and transported in safety and without disturbance. On opening, an automatic integrated light illuminates the Hamper in a warm glow, in turn reflecting from the mirrored surfaces to evoke the aesthetic of a luxurious cocktail bar.

“Each motor car that we craft represents a deeply personal expression of individual customer tastes and lifestyles. This extraordinary scope for personalisation extends far beyond the car itself through an Accessories Collection, featuring exceptional objects designed to augment the lifestyles of the marque’s customers,” said Gavin Hartley, Head of Bespoke Design, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “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.”

Every possible application is considered and ingeniously executed. Should the user wish to present their guests with canapés, two dishes find their place in the lower portion of the Hamper, either side of an ice bucket, whilst discreet drawers hold recipe cards and fine cotton napkins. The upper tier of the Hamper, containing tumblers, decanters and a shaker, is adorned in a Golden Sand coloured leather, selected for its vibrancy, offset with polished aluminium.

Smaller utensils including a muddler finished in American Walnut and a strainer engraved with the ‘RR’ monogram are securely stored on a specially developed moveable rack that can be locked when not in use and moved via a hinge to ensure effortless access when required.

Only the very finest materials, sourced from the world’s best suppliers adorn a Rolls-Royce motor car, with this philosophy extending in this instance to the choice of glassware. Theresienthal, Europe’s most revered glassmaker and supplier of many of the Continent’s Royal Courts, was chosen for their unique dedication to artisanal hand-craftsmanship.

The glasses themselves take one month to complete owing to the utilisation of a time-honoured technique that sees the glass blown into beech wood moulds, guaranteeing an exceptionally smooth surface. Many of the Theresienthal craftspeople represent the fifth generation of their family to work at the foundry. The presence of the human hand at every stage of the production process ensures no two glasses are the same, with almost imperceptible differences attributable only to the glasses’ master craftsperson.

As an exclusive flourish, designed to express the delicacy of the glasses themselves, the rims are finished in platinum.

Finally, a perfect service is guaranteed through the inclusion of a glass tray, discreetly and safely housed beneath the integrated wooden chopping board, ensuring drinks are presented to guests in consummate Rolls-Royce luxury. As a finishing touch, a book containing a series of cocktail recipes inspired by the marque’s extraordinary heritage completes the set.

Only 15 of these exquisitely crafted hampers will be produced, ensuring their exclusivity. Customers wishing to acquire one can do so through one of the marque’s 130 dealerships across the globe.
