Whisky Gift Idea for Starters and Mixers: Chivas 12
Smooth, rich and generous – there’s a reason why Chivas 12 Year Old remains a classic. If you know someone that’s looking to start their whisky journey, a whisky gift that’s smooth is essential so not to overwhelm the palate. The desire for a smooth finish is exactly why John and James Chivas began blending whiskies back in the 19th century – and it’s a trait that’s still cherished in Chivas Regal today. Its versatile nature plays well with a range of mixers (especially soda in a Whisky Highball) and is great for experimenting with cocktails – this is the Chivas gift that will keep on giving new flavour experiences.
Whisky Gift Idea for Flavour Explorers: Chivas Extra 13

Chivas Ultis is the blend for those who have truly made it.

Whisky Gift Idea for fans of the classics: Chivas 25
Those who love the classics should look no further than Chivas 25. This rich and fruity 25-year-old blend was made famous as the world’s first luxury whisky, taking New York by storm in 1909. Despite its reign being cut short by Prohibition in 1920, Chivas 25 was reignited in 2007 – making there no better whisky lover’s gift. Who doesn’t love an original?
