Strathisla Distillery

The Chivas brothers were a fine blend of each, much like the Whisky they pioneered.

The journey the brothers embarked upon back in the day doesn’t have a final destination. We are still on the journey today.

Humble beginnings, but a landscape full of character and possibility.

Growing up on a remote Scottish farm, James and John Chivas were acutely aware that the world around them was changing and the idyllic backdrop they called home was no longer big enough to support their desire to make a difference.

Following a three-day journey on foot, the brothers found themselves in Aberdeen. A city that perfectly matched their ambition.

Finding gainful employment at an Aberdeen emporium James was quickly captivated by a whole new world of tastes, smells and exquisite flavours. Anything seemed possible and James quickly garnered a reputation for obtaining the unobtainable.
If they didn’t stock it, they’d find it. If they couldn’t find it, they’d make it.
When John joined the business Chivas Brothers was born.

Originally established in 1786, Strathisla is the oldest working distillery in the Scottish highlands and arguably the most beautiful.

Located in the Speyside region of Scotland, Strathisla single malt is at the heart of each and every Chivas regal blend.

Often described as the most picturesque distillery in Scotland, Strathisla proves that beauty really isn’t skin deep. Beneath the iconic twin pagodas, the copper stills have a distinctive shape that determines the unique character of every drop of Strathisla whisky. A signature richness, fruity and full-bodied.

Such are our stills importance in maintaining the absolute continuity of flavour, should any replacements be needed in the future, the exact replicas would need to be just that exact.

Dents, creases and all.

It is this micro attention to detail that ensures the heart of the Chivas blend is preserved for generations to come.
