Rolls-Royce, yes, that Rolls-Royce, has announced a new travel humidor. And just like the cars the company sells, its price is more than just about any of its competitors. In fact, Rolls-Royce’s new humidor is more than the average price of a new car sold in the U.S. last year.
It’s called the Rolls-Royce Cellarette and technically it’s more than just a travel humidor. The aluminum structure opens on both its top, left and right. The top portion lifts up to reveal hand-blown rocks glasses while the sides each contain a canister. One of those canisters is designed to hold a bottle, Rolls-Royce markets the product for whisky; while the other canister is a Spanish cedar-lined travel humidor that has slots for four cigars. The bottle holder is lined with leather and the travel humidor features an analog hygrometer.
The price is £40,570 ($55,132) excluding taxes.
Rolls-Royce says the top piece is designed to function as a table, a press release says it could be ” a centrepiece at an al fresco dining experience.” It’s made out of obsidian ayous open pore veneer and features Rolls-Royce’s iconic Spirit of Ecstasy logo.
There are also two S.T.Dupont accessories made specifically for the Cellarette. Included with the Cellarette is a Rolls-Royce S.T.Dupont Ligne 2 soft lighter and what appears to be a special version of the company’s Cigar Stand Cutter. Those accessories are stored inside of a smaller circular container that attaches magnetically to the travel humidor. There’s also an ashtray that attaches via magnets as well.
Rolls-Royce says that the Cellarette can be customized to a buyer’s specifications, which likely opens up an endless amount of possibilities so long as someone is willing to pay for it. For those interested, the Cellarette can be purchased at Rolls-Royce dealerships around the world.
This is not the first time Rolls-Royce has offered a humidor. It has integrated humidors into various models of its vehicles in the modern era. This has included humidors inside of the rear seat trays as well as an option to have a small humidor installed in the glovebox of the Rolls-Royce Phantom.
Rolls-Royce also sells a different version of the Cellarette called the Champagne Chest. It uses the same basic design, though it is designed to hold Champagne and caviar.
