Selectively finished in Grande Champagne Cognac casks, Chivas XV is a disruptive new addition to the Scotch category

Chivas is shaking up the Scotch whisky market in Zambia with the launch of Chivas XV – a 15 year old blend that challenges conventions around how and when to enjoy Scotch whisky.

Created to be enjoyed as part of a high-energy, celebratory moment, Chivas XV proves that a serious whisky doesn’t need a serious setting to be enjoyed.

Continuing Chivas’ tradition for expert blending, Chivas XV is aged for a minimum of 15 years and selectively finished in Grande Champagne Cognac casks, bringing together two of the world’s most prestigious spirits to seamlessly blend tradition and innovation. The use of Grande Champagne Cognac casks delivers a rich, refined and velvety interpretation of the traditional Chivas house style.

This combination provides the perfect taste profile for a wide range of contemporary serving styles, encouraging whisky fans to enjoy their favourite spirit in a whole new way – from Chivas XV shots to cocktails designed to emphasise the quality and rich flavour of the whisky during high-energy celebrations.

Chivas XV, named in a nod to both the age statement and the style of traditional Cognac classification, features a contemporary new look, while also sharing the same iconic bottle shape that helps to make Chivas whiskies so recognisable around the world. Chivas XV is available in two formats to cater for different occasions: an eye-catching gold bottle stands out from the crowd during moments of celebration, while a clear bottle with a sophisticated gold outer carton makes the perfect celebratory purchase or gift.

Mandla Mthombeni, Marketing Manager for Chivas in South Central Africa, explains:

“We know that Scotch whisky fans love Chivas’ generous style but are also looking to try out new tastes, and find new ways in which to enjoy their favourite whisky. Enter Chivas XV – which is the perfect expression for those who want to celebrate life with a truly luxurious and unique spirit that has been designed specifically with the energy of the consumption occasion in mind. A disruptive move for the category, Chivas XV presents a more contemporary side to Scotch, and encourages whisky drinkers to create memorable experiences that live on long after the celebration.”

The Chivas XV launch kicks off this Saturday (December 15, 2018) with a high-energy event at the new Drama Night Club in Manda Hill which will include performances by Mr P of P-Square, Chef 187, Cleo Ice Queen and Bobby East.

Chivas XV will be on sale in all major retailers in Zambia from December 18, 2018.
