Chivas Regal + Pininfarina: CHIVAS 18
Chivas Regal 18 Year Old and Pininfarina have come together for the first time to create a series of limited editions: Chivas 18 by Pininfarina. Both Chivas and Pininfarina share a rich heritage in crafting, rewarding and stimulating experiences in luxury. Pininfarina has been a crusader in Italian design and engineering since 1930, whilst Chivas Regal is the original luxury whisky blend, established in 1801.
The first expression is based on a streamlined drop, giving a sense of movement that is inherent to Pininfarina. A rich blue, metallic outer case, is reminiscent of the Italian company’s iconic metalwork, while the wood veneer represents the oak barrels so crucial in the ageing process of Chivas 18. Available from The Whisky Shop and UK retailers for RRP of £105.
2nd Limited Edition
The second expression of the partnership takes classic Pininfarina design cues further, featuring a solid wood inlay and aerodynamic lines. Proudly presenting the limited edition bottle, the limited edition also includes two glasses which echo the drop design – an exclusive creation for Chivas 18, designed by Pininfarina. Each unit is individually numbered, to highlight its limited edition status. Available from The Whisky Shop and UK retailers for RRP of £420 (MAIN IMAGE).
“The partnership celebrates the synergies between heritage, luxury and style. Chivas Regal understands design and has a history of working with iconic visionaries in this field. The limited edition range will appeal to those with an appreciation for craftsmanship, history and elegance.” – Patrick Venning, Marketing Director, Pernod Ricard UK
The aerodynamic, limited edition design ‘The Drop’ is inspired by air and liquid.
Chivas 18 Mascherone by Pininfarina
Inspired by the mascherone, the original wooden frame that was used to refine new automobile shapes, the Chivas 18 Mascherone by Pininfarina marks the pinnacle of the partnership. Hand assembled in Cambiano by Pininfarina, it features an oak internal structure, clad in aluminium. Mirroring the elegant precision of Pininfarina’s celebrated automotive innovations, only five of this collector’s piece will be on display globally and individual pieces will be made to order on request. A light at the base of the Mascherone brings this artistic piece to life. Price on application.
All expressions include a specially designed bottle of Chivas 18 with Pininfarina’s design notes on the metalised crest and the Italian company’s logo, proudly emblazoned on the capsule and neck wrap.
