As one of the global faces of Chivas Regal, Javier’s experience in Scotland was captured on film, and will be shared on the Chivas Regal social media channels later this year.

Chivas Regal Custodian Master Blender, Colin Scott, said: “We were delighted to welcome Javier to our Strathisla Distillery, the home of Chivas Regal, where he took part in an ‘Art of Blending’ Masterclass with our Director of Blending, Sandy Hyslop.

“Then, in the exclusive Chivas Cellar, I hosted Javier to a special tasting of Chivas Regal 25, which he personally drew straight from the cask.”
