CHIVAS BROTHERS UNVEILS 2020 DISTILLERY RESERVE COLLECTION FEATURING 48 NEW SINGLE CASKS
Series of eight The Glenlivet Single Casks at the heart of the collection
Chivas Brothers, the Scotch whisky business of Pernod Ricard, has released its latest single malt collection with 48 new single cask expressions, providing connoisseurs with the opportunity to discover, sample and collect rare malts from the heart of the iconic Speyside region.
Available to purchase at Chivas Brothers’ distilleries, the Distillery Reserve Collection is a carefully curated selection of four to 29 year old whiskies from Chivas Brothers’ 13 Scottish single malt distilleries, including The Glenlivet, Strathisla, Aberlour and Scapa, each renowned for their style, tradition and quality distilling.
At the heart of the collection sits a range of ten single cask editions from The Glenlivet, pioneer of the original Speyside style.
The Glenlivet Distillery Reserve Collection bottlings begin with a vibrant 8 Year Old 55.5% ABV matured in a 1st Fill Barrel and explores up the age range across various cask types to a sumptuous and rich The Glenlivet 25 Year Old 56% ABV 2nd Fill Butt.
For the first time, a smaller selection of The Glenlivet Distillery Reserve Collection bottlings will also be available from The Glenlivet website (https://www.theglenlivet.com/en-UK/the-collection), offering fans in the UK, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Belgium, Netherlands and Denmark an opportunity to try these exclusive editions despite the current travel restrictions.
The wider collection also features releases from some of the smaller distilleries in the Chivas Brothers portfolio, including the much-loved Aberlour and Scapa. Of particular note are a pair of Aberlour 13 Year Old single casks, one matured in a Sherry Butt (60.9% ABV) and one in an American Oak Cask (53.2% ABV).
The collection also includes single malt from a distillery often hailed as one of the most technologically-advanced in Scotland. Whisky drinkers can now enjoy Dalmunach’s unique style with three expressions available exclusively in the Distillery Reserve Collection.
Miriam Eceolaza, Marketing Director, Single Malts at Chivas Brothers commented:
“Our distilleries are the beating heart of Chivas Brothers and the Distillery Reserve Collection celebrates the heritage, innovation and style that make each one unique. This one-of-a-kind collection has been hand-selected to showcase the breadth of character and bold flavours single malt distilleries can achieve. I’m thrilled to be able to invite whisky lovers to join us in celebrating the stories of Speyside and delve even deeper into the vast world of single malt whiskies.”
