The Chivas Brothers story begins at a grocery store in Aberdeen, Scotland, in 1801. As the business grew, the Chivas Brothers quickly gained a reputation as a supplier of high quality malt goods, supplies and whiskeys to their customers. In recognition of the reputation and quality of their businesses, James Chivas and his partner Charles Stewart are distinguished with the first of several Royal Guarantees awarded by Queen Victoria as suppliers of goods and supplies to the Royal House. James and John Chivas became pioneers in the art of selecting and combining various aged malt and grain whiskeys in the style of Casa Chivas, that is, smooth, rich and with an excellent harmony of flavours. This tradition has been passed down from generation to generation, being carefully preserved to this day.
Created in 2018 by Sandy Hyslop, Master Blender, Chivas XV is a celebratory way to enjoy scotch whiskey blended. This mixture is left to rest for at least 15 long years – represented by the Roman numerals XV – to provide rich aromas to those who enjoy it in an instant.
The combination of a long maturation with a selective finish* in cognac casks results in a truly luxurious and velvety finish. With rich raisin notes and warm cinnamon touches, it’s a blend worth toasting.
