Rolls-Royce Motor cars recently unveiled its newest addition to its portfolio of collectibles, the $55,000 Bespoke Cellarette, a whiskey and cigar chest containing an array of accouterments designed to perfect any soiree, provides its discerning clients with effortless and affable hosting opportunities.
“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.” said Nicholas Abrams, Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
The polished aluminum chassis, enveloped by embossed Rolls-Royce Havana leather complete with an Obsidian Ayous Open Pore veneer serving tray with Spirit of Ecstasy inlay, makes the Cellarette the perfect accessory for any Rolls-Royce owner. The dark exterior opens to it a warm ambient glow. Armagnac leather highlights are 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. At the opposing end is a humidor which, when opened, offers the user 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.
Accompanying the humidor are 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.
The Rolls-Royce Cellarette is available to acquire through Rolls-Royce dealerships, with prices starting at £40,570 (Est/ $54,990) excluding local taxes.
