Blending at Home with Chivas' Experimental Gift Kit

By Phoebe Calver
Chivas has launched a blending kit that features a selection of whiskies and tools to give a hands-on experience in the art of blending at home.

The kit contains four single malt whiskies and one blended grain whisky, each representing a different flavour characteristic: floral, fruity, citrus, creamy, and smoky. A pipette and a beaker are also included within the kit, plus a bottle of Chivas 12.

The new release was launched to bring the craft to life outside of Chivas director of blending, Sandy Hyslop’s blending room.

Sandy, who's been blending Scotch whisky for more than 30 years, said: “At Chivas we believe that blended is better – in life and in Scotch. Every day I get to indulge in my greatest passion, experimenting with the world’s finest malt and grain whiskies to create something extraordinary when blended together – and this passion is something I want to share with other whisky fans. Each component in a blend plays an important role in determining the profile of the finished whisky – I can’t wait to see what creations my fellow blenders around the world put together.”
