Breaking with Scotch whisky tradition, there are three expressions of the Chivas 18 by Pininfarina limited edition, including:
Limited Edition 1
The first expression is based on a streamlined drop, giving a sense of movement that is inherent to Pininfarina. A rich blue, metallic finish outer case, reminiscent of the metalwork the Italian company is best known for, with a wood veneer; representing the oak barrels so crucial in the ageing process of Chivas 18.
Limited Edition 2
The second expression of the partnership features the same design cues, but takes them even further by featuring a solid wood inlay and is even more aerodynamic. Proudly presenting the limited edition bottle, it also includes two glasses which echo the drop design – an exclusive creation for Chivas 18, designed by Pininfarina. Each unit is individually numbered, to highlight its limited edition status.
Chivas 18 Mascherone by Pininfarina
Inspired by the mascherone (the original wooden frame that was used to refine new automobile shapes) the Chivas 18 Mascherone by Pininfarina marks the pinnacle of the partnership. Hand assembled in Cambiano by Pininfarina, it features an oak internal structure, clad in aluminium. Mirroring the elegant precision of Pininfarina's celebrated automotive innovations, only five of this collector's piece will be on display globally and individual pieces will be made to order on request. A light, found at the base, brings this artistic piece to life.
All expressions include a specially designed bottle of Chivas 18 with Pininfarina’s design notes visible on the metalised crest and the Italian company’s logo, proudly emblasoned on the capsule and neck wrap.
