Chivas Regal Ultis

Chivas Regal is launching their latest luxury expression, Chivas Regal Ultis, the brand’s first 100% blended malt. The luxury expression is a tribute to five generations of Master Blenders who have spent their life’s work creating the Chivas signature style since 1909.

Chivas Regal Ultis is a blend of five single malts which are the signature malts of the Chivas house style: Strathisla, Longmorn, Tormore, Allt A’Bhainne and Braeval. According to master Blender, Colin Scott, “each malt and each individual blender have added an element of expertise to the whisky, which is unique to the blend”.

To launch Chivas Regal Ultis, Hollywood actor Chris Evans (Captain America) visited Australia in his new role as Asia Pacific Ambassador for Chivas Regal. The launch event was also hosted by Australian Chivas Regal Ambassador Michael Klim. Both men are part of Chivas Regal’s latest campaign, Win the Right Way, with the aim of reinforcing the belief that real success is not measured by a man’s wealth alone but by how many lives he has enriched.

At the launch event held at Palmer & Co in Sydney, five tasting stations were set up, each featuring one of the five whiskies from the blend: Tormore for its citrus notes, Longmore for creamy vanilla, Strathisla for stone fruit with malty character,  A’Bhainne for spice and Braeval for floral notes and a delicate finish.
