AN ICON RE-BORN
Chivas 12 unveilsbold, contemporary new look ..
Blended Scotch whisky, Chivas has unveiled a fresh new look for its flagship blend - the biggest redesign in Chivas’ 112-year history. Chivas 12 - one of the world’s biggest-selling Scotch whiskies - has undergone an extensive redesign of its bottle, label, and pack to usher in a striking new look that blends boldness, modernity, and status while still flexing the luxury and distinguished heritage long associated with Chivas.
Dropping globally from October 2021, the redesign sees the iconic Chivas 12 bottle reshaped and elongated to stand taller and prouder while still retaining its recognisable rounded shoulders. A redesigned crest shines a light on the beating heart of Chivas – the ‘luckenbooth’, a symbol embodying the Chivas values of ambition, generosity and unapologetic success.
The outer box has undergone a complete renewal with a vibrant burgundy replacing the familiar silver and gold tones as the principal colour scheme. The package retains the intricate detailing and textured finish loved by Chivas fans worldwide.
The entire redesign project was conceived with sustainability at its heart as part of parent company Chivas Brothers’ 2025 target of 100% recyclable, reusable, compostable or bio-based packaging. The new bottle is lighter, saving over 1000 tonnes of glass annually, while the outer packaging is now made from fully recyclable materials. The whisky in each bottle remains the same renowned smooth, rich and generous Chivas 12 blend.
The redesign is inspired by the aesthetics of a new, style-conscious generation of Scotch Whisky drinkers who are reforming and re-evaluating what luxury looks like. The sleek, luxe, and sophisticated new Chivas 12 is the first in a series of updates due to take place across the Chivas portfolio over the coming year.
The new Chivas 12 will be dropping globally from October 2021, supported by a campaign launching in January 2022 that summons consumers to elevate themselves to new levels of status and hype.
