THE CHIVAS HISTORY
We’ve been making history since 1801. Centuries of hustling have gone into our whiskies – and it’s all thanks to the legendary Chivas brothers.
The Chivas journey began on an idyllic farm in the rural Scottish Highlands. Our founders John and James Chivas were born as two of 11 children – and their ambitions were as big as their family.
Family traditions reigned strong in 19th century Scotland, with the brothers expected to go into the family farming business.
While proud of their roots, the brothers knew they wanted more. They had drive.
They radically moved to the city of Aberdeen – a tough three-day venture by foot – with the desire to create something bigger.
THE HOME OF CHIVAS
Nestled in the rolling Highland hills is the stunning Strathisla Distillery; the home of Chivas. Originally established in 1786, it’s the oldest working distillery in the Scottish Highlands. Strathisla single malt whisky flows through every bottle of Chivas Regal – it’s our signature smooth flavour.
Whisky is much more than just a drink. From the precise steps of distillation to the patience of maturation, there’s a lot that goes into Scotch – and specifically, Chivas Regal. While there are just three ingredients that are used to make malt whisky (barley, water and yeast), hard work turns these into something truly special.
