Chivas 18 by Pininfarina Cocktails


6th June 2013
Chivas 18 by Pininfarina cocktails by leading mixologist Tony Conigliaro.

To mark the prestigious collaboration Chivas 18 by Pininfarina, leading mixologist Tony Conigliaro has fittingly crafted a series of cocktails, which marry the influences of Italy and Scotland.

Widely recognised as the world's foremost maverick in creating drinks, Tony Conigliaro has taken a series of classic cocktails and ingredients, inspired by his own Italian heritage, to create four Chivas 18 drinks which stimulate the senses and ensure every taste of these interpretations is a new experience.

Chivas 18 by Pininfarina is an aerodynamic limited edition design ‘The Drop’, inspired by air and liquid, which has taken the form of three expressions, uniting both houses in their ongoing quest for beauty, harmony and, ultimately, pleasure.

Both Chivas and Pininfarina share a rich heritage in crafting rewarding and stimulating experiences in luxury. Pininfarina has been a crusader in Italian design and engineering since 1930, Chivas Regal is the original luxury whisky blend, established in 1909. Tony Conigliaro's career has seen him continually work to break boundaries surrounding the drinking experience and expand upon the idea of what a cocktail can be, using bespoke ingredients.

The cocktails that follow are designed to be re-created at home and have been carefully crafted to be as stimulating to the eye and nose as the palate - enjoy!
 

Chivas Chamomile Sour


The Italians have a strong affinity with Chamomile, a floral herb they grow up with. Here, Chamomile adopts a very adult, sophisticated guise, infusing Chivas 18 in a delicious variation of the classic whisky sour.

Recipe Per Serving:
  • 50ml Chivas 18
     
  • 25ml Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
     
  • 25ml Egg White
     
  • 15ml Chamomile Syrup
     
  • 3 dash Angostura Bitters

Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker (no ice) and shake. Add ice to the shaker and then hard shake. Strain and serve simply as it is in coupe glassware.
 

Chivas Rob Roy


Inspired by Scottish folk hero Robert Roy MacGregor, the old school version of the Rob Roy is similar to a Manhattan but Tony's version also incorporates the very Italian spirit Vermouth.

Recipe Per Serving:
  • 20ml Chivas 18
     
  • 40ml Chivas Vermouth
     
  • 2.5ml Maraschino Liqueur luxado
     
  • 3 dash Angostura Bitters

Add the ingredients to an ice filled cocktail shaker and stir. Serve in a small coupette with a fresh cherry to garnish.
 

Chivas Army & Navy


Tony has taken inspiration from the classic gin cocktail and substituted gin with Chivas 18. The first Army & Navy recipe found by Tony is from 1948 so it could have been created in honour of the armed forces and it wasn't long after the end of WWII. On the other hand, it may just have been created at the Army & Navy Club in Washington.

Recipe Per Serving:
  • 50ml Chivas 18
     
  • 25ml Lemon Juice (Fresh Squeezed lemon juice)
     
  • 15ml Cherry Orgeat

Add to a cocktail shaker over ice and shake. Double strain and serve in Coupe glassware, garnished each time with a lemon twist.
 

Chivas Sparkling Peach


The Bellini is very popular in Northern Italy. This new Chivas 18 based interpretation offers complexity and depth.

Recipe Per Serving:
  • 20ml Chivas 18
     
  • 75ml Fresh Peach Juice

Add Chivas 18 and peach juice to a soda stream bottle and carbonate. Then serve in a champagne flute.
