Life’s always better when you mix things up. The same goes for a finely matured whisky. That’s why Chivas, the original luxury blended Scotch whisky, has always brought together the best malt and grain whiskies for the perfect harmony between smoothness and flavour.
In 19th Century Aberdeen, brothers John and James Chivas pioneered the art of blending various whiskies together to create something extraordinary. Today, each Chivas Regal whisky has its own unique formula and selection of aged whiskies, giving each one a distinct character.
It’s why many agree, success is a blend.
