A spirits & cigar chest, the Rolls-Royce Cellarette features the same attention to detail as their cars
October 12, 2021: Delighted to present its new addition to its portfolio of collectables, the House of Rolls-Royce has announced the Rolls-Royce Cellarette. Deriving from the marque’s rich heritage of providing clients with effortless and affable hosting opportunities, the Cellarette contains an array of accoutrements designed to perfect any soiree.
Nicholas Abrams, Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars, said, “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.”
Epitomising true Rolls-Royce style of precision engineering, exquisite hand craftsmanship, and a breath-taking presentation of luxury, the Cellarette has a polished aluminium chassis, enveloped by embossed Rolls-Royce Havana leather complete with an Obsidian Ayous Open Pore veneer serving tray with Spirit of Ecstasy inlay, making it the perfect accessory for any Rolls-Royce owner with a passion for convivial hosting. Even though the Cellarette will fit into the rear of any Rolls-Royce, it wholly comes into its own as a centrepiece at an al fresco dining experience, or as an accompaniment at an intimate gathering.
The dark exterior opening to emit a warm ambient glow, the Armagnac leather highlights are accentuated by a soft light, evoking the atmosphere of a distinguished Members’ Club. Mirroring the opening of the coach doors of a Rolls-Royce motor car, an array of beautiful accessories are revealed in a mechanical fashion. And once unfurled, the client is present with hand-blown lowball glasses, each of which has been exquisitely finished with the ‘RR’ monogram. And these glasses rotate outwards as the unit opens, evoking a charming sense of theatre.
A magnificent Armagnac leather-lined bottle pannier is revealed, in unison with the glasses. The ‘RR’ embellished holder can adapt to different bottle sizes, with the bottle held in place magnetically by a polished aluminium fastener, ensuring the safe stooge of any one of the client’s preferred refreshments. And at the opposing end is a humidor offering the user a cigar tray, when opened. Spanish Cedarwood nestles cigars at the chosen humidity level for optimum enjoyment, with a hygrometer precisely monitoring its measure. The hygrometer recalls the hands of the fabled Rolls-Royce clock, featuring unique detailing.
The humidor will delight the cigar enthusiast. Two smaller containers are held magnetically at either end of the cassette - 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. The ashtray’s cigar cradles extend only once the container is opened, to ensure compact transit.
The Cellarette represents the commitment of the House of Rolls-Royce to producing the finest luxury products and experiences for its patrons, well beyond the confines of the automotive environment. The Cellarette can be tailored to the client’s exact specification, like any Rolls-Royce product.
The Rolls-Royce Cellarette would be available to acquire through Rolls-Royce dealerships, with prices starting from £40,750, exclusive of local taxes.
