In 2018 Manchester United and blended Scotch whisky Chivas announced a multi-year global partnership, what means that two global names are joining force to celebrate their collective belief that blended is better in football and in Scotch.
The Chivas branding will be displayed throughout the stadium. Chivas Regal Ultis 1999 Victory Edition celebrates Manchester United’s 1999 “Treble” win. That year guided by Sir Alex Ferguson Manchester United was the first English team to win the Premier League, FA Cup an the European Cup in the same season. Ultis 1999 Victory Edition is a vatting of three single malts, all distilled in the year of Manchester United’s victory and aged in various barrels for 20 years – Longmorn in American oak, Strathisla in traditional refill casks and Braeval in ex-sherry butts.
Producer’s tasting note: “three precious and treasured single malts result in a commanding whisky characterized by a rich golden hue, a powerful aroma and a complex taste. The creamy vanilla notes from traditional oak casks are complemented by hints of nutty oak and rich spice from American casks and European sherry butts respectively”.
