Its distinctive taste is the result of masterful blending and perfect ageing. The deep gold colour of the whisky reflects the power and richness of the flavours, with soft fruity aromas balanced with a delicate floral fragrance and mellow honeyed sweetness. Lavishly presented in a porcelain flagon, each bottle is individually embellished with the Chivas Brothers crest, over a four day period by craftsmen at Wade. The crest incorporates the image of Robert the Bruce and bears a Gaelic motto which translates as 'fidelity, stability since 1801'. The flagon is created by expert craftsmen and is enclosed in a velvet pouch.
