The Royal Malaysian Polo Association started the first RMPA International Polo Leagues back in 2005. Royal Salute, the world’s leading luxury Scotch whisky, sponsored the Royal Salute 21-Year Old at the Royal Malaysian Polo Association (RMPA) International League Final held at the Royal Selangor Polo Club.

The Selangor Polo Club was started at Port Swettenham (now Port Klang) in 1902. In the 1960’s, Malaysia's first Prime Minister, Tunku Abdul Rahman, granted the Selangor Polo Club a lease of 26 acres of state land in an area known as Ampang Hilir. In October of 1965, the new clubhouse was officially opened by the Tunku. Royal Salute begins where other whiskies end, as only the most precious whiskies aged for at least 21 years. Royal Salute created in 1953 by Chivas Brothers as a tribute to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II upon her coronation. The home of Royal Salute is Strathisla, the oldest working distillery in the Highlands of Scotland.
