Rolls-Royce wants you to rack up your ‘host with the most’ badge at your next private party and all the ones that will come after. The luxury automaker, whose unquestionably exquisite skills are well-respected and well-known in the industry, has unveiled the latest addition to its Connoisseur’s Collection: the Rolls-Royce Cellarette.
The whiskey and cigar chest has been designed to reflect the Rolls Royce ethos of precision engineering, exquisite hand craftsmanship and a breath-taking presentation of luxury. Its different compartments were carefully put together to perfect any soiree, providing clients with effortless and affable hosting opportunities. The brand promises that the Cellarette will both surprise and delight those who encounter it.
“The Rolls-Royce Cellarette, the latest addition to the Rolls-Royce Connoisseur’s Collection, offers our clients new ways to enhance their lifestyle beyond the experience of their Rolls-Royce motor car. Historically, Cellarettes were used to secure wine and spirits. This bespoke chest can be configured to stow aperitifs or digestifs, dependent on the client’s preferences, alongside prized cigars, in a spectacular fashion,” says an official statement from the brand.
The elegant exterior features a polished aluminium chassis surrounded by embossed Rolls-Royce Havana leather. It comes with an Obsidian Ayous Open Pore veneer serving tray with Spirit of Ecstasy inlay, that, when opened, reveals a warm interior.
This interior is lined with Armagnac leather highlights which is further accentuated by a soft light, evoking the atmosphere of a distinguished Members’ Club. An array of beautiful accessories are revealed in a mechanical fashion, mirroring the opening of the coach doors of a Rolls-Royce motor car. Once unfurled, the client is presented with hand-blown lowball glasses, each exquisitely finished with the ‘RR’ monogram. These glasses rotate outwards as the unit opens, evoking a charming sense of theatre.
In unison with the glasses, a magnificent Armagnac leather-lined bottle pannier is revealed. The ‘RR’ embellished holder can adapt to different bottle sizes, with the bottle held in place magnetically by a polished aluminium fastener, ensuring safe stowage of any one of the client’s preferred refreshments.
On the opposite side is the humidor containing a cigar tray. Cigars are nestled in Spanish Cedarwood at the chosen humidity level for optimum enjoyment, a measure that is precisely monitored by a hygrometer. Featuring unique detailing, the hygrometer recalls the hands of the fabled Rolls-Royce clock.
But that is not all. The humidor also packs the perfect accessories for cigar enthusiasts. Magnetically held at either end of the cassette are two smaller containers – one for an intricately detailed cigar cutter and lighter, made by S. T. Dupont, Paris, and engraved with the Spirit of Ecstasy Expression, and the other for an ashtray. To ensure compact transit, the ashtray’s cigar cradles extend only once the container is opened.
The Rolls-Royce Cellarette starts at £40,570 and is available for purchase in all Rolls-Royce dealerships. It can also be customised to your exact specification, just like any Rolls-Royce product.
