The Rolls-Royce Cellarette: A Bespoke Whisky And Cigar Chest
◙ By D’Affluent Magazine
The name Rolls-Royce is synonymous with ultra-luxury and superior craftsmanship. Rolls-Royce has for a long time been crafting luxury and style. When we talk about luxury cars, Rolls-Royce sits right on top. While Rolls-Royce is known for their ultra-luxury cars and aircraft engines, there is more to Rolls-Royce’s craftsmanship.
For the haut monde who demands the highest of standards, the best of class, the finest of quality, top-notch design, and unrivalled luxury; The House of Rolls-Royce presents the newest addition to its portfolio of collectables, the Rolls-Royce Cellarette; a Whisky and Cigar Chest designed for the connoisseur.
“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.”
Nicholas Abrams, Bespoke Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars
The Rolls-Royce Cellarette is a set of luxurious array of accoutrements derived from Rolls-Royce’s rich heritage. Designed with precession engineering, exquisite hand craftsmanship, and a breath-taking presentation of luxury; the Cellarette epitomises the true Rolls-Royce style and spirit that the marque is known for around the world.
A cigar cutter and lighter, made by S. T. Dupont, Paris, sits beside the iconic “Spirit of Ecstasy.”
True to Rolls-Royce’s standards, the Rolls-Royce Cellarette is engineered to high degrees of quality and grandness. It comes with an exquisite polished aluminium chassis that is enveloped in embossed Rolls-Royce Havana leather complete with an Obsidian Ayous Open Pore veneer serving tray that is adorned with the iconic “Spirit of Ecstasy” inlay.
The fold-up tray opens upwards in a mechanical fashion that mirrors the opening of the coach doors of a Rolls-Royce motor car, emitting a warm ambient glow. Armagnac leather highlights are accentuated by a soft light, evoking the atmosphere of a distinguished Members’ Club. Here, four hand-blown lowball glasses, each exquisitely finished with Rolls-Royce’s ‘RR’ monogram rotates outwards as the unit opens; evoking a charming sense of theatre.
Armagnac leather-lined bottle pannier with polished aluminium fastener that holds a bottle in place, and a cigar humidor with Spanish Cedar wood cigar holders.
On the sides of the Cellarette are black anodised aluminium “doors” that opens in unison with the glasses. One side reveals a magnificent Armagnac leather-lined bottle pannier. The ‘RR’ embellished holder can adapt to different bottle sizes. The bottle is held in place magnetically by a polished aluminium fastener, ensuring safe stowage of any one of the client’s preferred refreshments.
At the other side of the Cellarette is an exquisitely designed humidor that offers the user a cigar tray. Cigars are nestled in Spanish Cedar wood at the chosen humidity level that is precisely monitored by a hygrometer. The hygrometer features a unique detailing that recalls the hands of the fabled Rolls-Royce clock. Humidity level inside the humidor is set to keep cigars fresh for optimum enjoyment.
Exquisite and elegantly designed for the haut monde.
To complete every cigar enthusiasts wants, the humidor comes with two smaller containers that are magnetically held at either end of the cassette. One is for an intricately detailed cigar cutter and lighter, made by S. T. Dupont, Paris, and engraved with the Spirit of Ecstasy Expression. The other is for an ashtray with cigar cradles. The ashtray’s cigar cradles only extend once the container is opened.

Although the Cellarette will fit into the rear of any Rolls-Royce, it will make for an elegant centrepiece anywhere it is placed on, such as a grand dining table made of teak, or on a stately mahogany table at the office. Wherever the Rolls-Royce Cellarette is placed it is sure to make a statement. A statement of elegance, grandness, and that of the pinnacle of luxury.
Like any Rolls-Royce product, the Cellarette can be tailored to the client’s exact specification. The Rolls-Royce Cellarette is available at Rolls-Royce dealerships, with prices starting from £40,570 (USD$55,105.00) excluding local taxes.
