Rolls-Royce presented a limited edition Cocktail Hamper made for those customers who wish to relax and enjoy something a little beyond the traditional glass of Champagne.
The level of expectations from a Rolls-Royce customer is on a completely different scale than for most motorists. He always needs to feel pampered while lounging in back seat and enjoying a glass of Champagne. But what if he craves for something different beyond the traditional glass of a bubbly beverage? Rolls-Royce offers an alternative to this “predicament” by presenting the limited edition Cocktail Hamper. 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 is hand-crafted over a period of eight weeks from American Walnut Wood and 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. 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. 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 a smooth surface. 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.
