Chivas Extra 13 Blended Scotch Whisky
Chivas Regal Extra American Rye fuses together the best of Scotland and America in this enticing blend. Unequalled Chivas house style Scotch is aged in ex American rye whisky casks for 13 years – marking the 13 years of the prohibition in America. Because blended is better, in life and in Scotch.
For over 200 years rye whiskies were the spirit of choice across America – until prohibition called time on drinking. After 13 years of prohibition the good times returned, but rye fell out of favour as Scotch became the sophisticated choice. Now, we’ve blended the best of both worlds with our Chivas Regal Extra American Rye whisky.
EXTRA AMERICANA CHARACTER
Chivas Regal first landed on the American shoreline in 1909. Taking New York by storm, Chivas Regal was the preferred drink of choice in luxury bars around the city. Despite a 13 year hiatus during the prohibition years, Chivas never left the hearts and minds of New Yorkers – and when the dark days were over, Chivas returned with a bang.
To produce Chivas Regal Extra American Rye, the unrivalled Chivas house style blend is aged in ex American rye whisky casks – offering a mellow flavour and magnifying its sweet and delicate vanilla notes.
Aging in the cask for 13 years not only allows time for our whisky to absorb those marvellous flavours, but also honours the 13 years of prohibition.
A delicate medley of light fruity vanilla notes, creamy toffee, grapefruit, zesty orange and lemon citrus finished with a dusting of cinnamon.
“My design aims to create a visual journey; layered fragments of type and imagery reference iconic Americana and Chivas Regal’s rich heritage in America. Having the freedom & courage to blaze your own trail is what makes the American Blend a Success” Greg Gossel.
