Chivas Regal Ultis, the first blended malt Scotch whisky from the House of Chivas Regal, is celebrating its latest success after being crowned the best non-age statement Scotch whisky at the 22nd annual International Spirits Challenge (ISC) ceremony in London.

The event, regarded as the most authoritative, respected and influential spirits competition in the world, saw its experienced panel of specialist judges unanimous in their praise for Chivas Regal Ultis, with each recognising the style and complexity of Chivas Regal’s ultimate whisky. After undergoing the rigorous blind tasting process by the ISC’s judges, Chivas Regal Ultlis was crowned the best Scotch blend with no age statement.

Chivas Regal Ultis is a blend of five single malts: Tormore, Longmorn, Strathisla, Allt A’Bhainne and Braeval. Created in tribute to the five master blenders who have maintained the Chivas house style since 1909, the blend draws on expertise that has been handed down throughout the centuries to give a rounded, complex and full-flavoured whisky.

Sandy Hyslop, Director of Blending at Chivas Brothers, commented:

“Chivas Regal Ultis truly embodies the essence of Chivas Regal, and all that it represents, so we’re delighted it has been awarded a trophy at this year’s ISC. Less than 1% of our entire inventory of whisky was selected to make Ultis, using only five of our signature single malts. This creation is a remarkable achievement of craftsmanship by our legendary blending team who personify all that is celebrated about Chivas Regal and its legacy. I am thrilled that our work has been recognised and celebrated by the industry experts.”

The ceremony was attended by Chivas Regal Custodian Master Blender, Colin Scott, who accepted the award on behalf of the team.

This most recent win tops a long list of recent awards for Chivas Regal Ultis including gold medals at The Scotch Whisky Masters and International Wine and Spirits Competition.
