Two legendary houses, Chivas and Balmain, join forces to drop an exclusive, limited-edition Balmain x Chivas XV collection. Bringing a Parisian savoir-faire to Chivas’ 15-year-old blended Scotch, the collaboration takes the form of two limited-edition bottle designs, developed by Chivas in partnership with Balmain Creative Director, Olivier Rousteing.

A partnership built on the authentic fusion of heritage, boldness and innovation, the Balmain x Chivas XV collection embraces the shared vision of two pioneering houses – Balmain’s daring outlook on fashion alongside Chivas’ disruptive approach to Scotch.

Just as Chivas XV brings a contemporary twist to Scotch by selectively finishing its aged whisky in Cognac casks, the Balmain x Chivas XV collaboration brings a modern twist to Scotch by blending the spirit of luxury French fashion with an icon of luxury Scotch whisky.

The collection features bold designs from Balmain and Chivas that embody the iconic codes and legendary success associated with each house.

The First Drop, an extremely limited and individually numbered gold bottle, is adorned with metallic armour and chains in a nod to Balmain’s signature runway pieces, whilst the Second Drop brings to life Balmain’s recognisable silhouette, through a symmetrical design of chains and belts directly inspired by the house’s recent collections.

We’ve incorporated so many signature Balmain designs and our easily recognised runway codes into the packaging and unique bottle design. We really want that connection to be clear from the beginning.” – Olivier Rousteing, Balmain Creative Director

The Balmain x Chivas XV collection is available in limited quantities globally and will be exclusively limited in Australia and New Zealand for friends of Chivas and the Balmain Army

The Glenlivet has introduced a single malt meets summer with the release of their Caribbean Reserve.

To create whisky with a tropical feel, the makers finished a portion of their smooth whisky in barrels that previously held Caribbean rum. The result is a well balanced and exceptionally smooth whisky perfect for balmy nights and cocktails.

On the nose there are sweet notes of pear and red apple meets ripe bananas in syrup. On the palate you will notice rich caramel toffe notes, followed by flavours of tropical fruit.

Enjoy Caribbean Reserve neat, on the rocks, topped with coconut water or in a Mai Tai.
