Chivas Regal who sell luxury scotch whiskey in over 150 countries around the world has collaborated with the Italian design and engineering icon Pininfarina to create three new experiences in limited edition or made to order. The roll out began on the 2nd of January and will cover 30 countries. It will be launched in UK in February and the USA, China and Russia will be covered in March. The exclusive designs created under the collaboration pay homage to the criticality of air and water in both the collaborators work. This is the first time these two iconic brands from their respective fields have come together to create something new and unique for the pleasure of their large customer base.
‘The Drop’ has an Aerodynamic Design Inspired by Air And Water
Chivas 18 by Pininfarina has three design concepts developed by Paolo Trevisan, the Design Manager of Pininfarina Extra. The Chivas 18 has been created personally by Colin Scott, the master blender at Chivas Regal. The ‘Drop’ is an aerodynamic design which seems to be inspired by air and water. Both the luxury brands have been striving for beauty and harmony and have crafted pleasurable and rewarding experiences in luxury for their customers. ‘The Drop’ consists of a case in rich blue with a metallic finish. The metalwork is trademark Pininfarina but it has the wood veneer to resemble the barrels that are used to age to perfection Chivas 18.
Chivas 18 Mascherone by Pininfarina Can be Made to Order on Request
There is a similarity between the first and the second concept but the second one takes the design cues further by featuring solid wood inlay in the highly aerodynamic design. The second concept also includes a couple of glasses which have also been designed to complement the ‘drop’ concept and theme. Each unit in this limited edition design has been numbered to highlight its exclusivity. The final concept developed by the collaborators is Chivas 18 Mascherone by Pininfarina. As the name suggests it is inspired by the mascherone. It features an oak internal structure, clad in aluminum. It is the most exclusive concept amongst the three and has been hand assembled in Cambiano. This is a collector’s piece and only five pieces will be made initially to be displayed globally. Similar pieces can be made to order on request. The specially designed bottle of Chivas 18 has the metalized crest and the Pininfarina logo on the capsule and neck wrap.
