Chivas Bartender’s Chapter – Intermezzo Bar, Vienna Chivas Regal whisky

Chivas Regal – Her Majesty’s whisky

The story of a Whisky begins in 1801 on the north coast of Scotland.  Chivas which is consumed all over the world and whose name is a symbolic character. Its success is based on the ambition and subtle senses of the brothers John and James Chivas. The Chivas Brothers dreamed of a soft whisky that was destined to be shared and enjoyed with friends. They combined various mature whiskies to make a Blend of unique taste.

Chivas Regal 12yo and 18yo are triple blended.  The Difference between Chivas Regal 12yo and Chivas Regal 18yo consists in the fact that for the 18-year-old whisky even more rare Malt and Grain Whiskies are used and the youngest component ages at least 18 years.

With the “Chivas Bartenders’ Chapter” project, Chivas Regal redefines the Cooperation with Bartenders. For the first time, four Viennese bartenders are selected, which for a whole year enjoyed the traditional Chivas Regal spirits (including a trip to Scotland) and share these insights with others.
