A night of whisky, watches and good company: Chivas 12 ‘Made for Gentlemen’ by Bremont Launch Party 12/9/2014

Craftsmanship, style and generosity are at the heart of the recent collaboration between Chivas Regal and award-winning British watch company Bremont. Known for crafting beautifully engineered chronometers, Bremont has partnered with Chivas to design the latest Chivas 12 Made for Gentlemen by Bremont Limited Edition gift tin. To further commemorate this collaboration, 12 handcrafted Bremont Chivalry Limited Edition watches have been created exclusively to feature in auctions around the world to help raise funds for a selection of charities. The handcrafted, individually numbered, timepieces feature a piece of oak cask used in the maturation of malt whiskies destined for Chivas, the signature of James and John Chivas etched on the rotor of the timepiece and the Chivas crest subtly embossed on the dial.  An engraved copper plate, taken from a retired Scotch whisky copper still, sits on the leather presentation pouch.

On 24th October 2014, the first live auction event took place in Malta at VASCAS in Naxxar, a leading Maltese jewelry retailer and the official agent for Bremont in Malta. Mr Stephen Lee, Area Sales Manager for Bremont, brought watch ‘number seven to be auctioned on the night and remained present for the event. The evening, organised by Farsons Beverage Imports Company Ltd. and VASCAS Enterprises Ltd., was a great success, and raised €7,800 which were donated to The Malta Community Chest Fund. The organizers of the event presented the donation to the President of the Republic of Malta, Marie Louise Coleiro-Preca. The Chivalry watch was auctioned by Mr Pierre Grech Pillow from Obelisk Auctions Ltd following speeches by Mr Mark Vassallo, Co-Director of VASCAS, Mr Pierre Stafrace, General Manager for FBIC Ltd., and Mr Stephen Lee from Bremont.

To mark the special occasion, Chivas cocktails were served throughout the night and included the signature Chivas-Bremont cocktail, The English Quaich’ to commemorate the collaboration. Food items, catered by Zest, were carefully selected to accompany the three Chivas cocktails: the Cooler, the Chivalry, and the English Quaich. At the end of the night guests were given goodie bags that included Chivas whisky stones thus ending the perfect evening of whisky, watches and good company.

Chivas is imported, marketed and distributed by imported, marketed and distributed by Farsons Beverage Imports Co. Ltd (FBIC), a member of the Farsons Group.
