The Chivas Extra 13 Rum Cask Selection embodies a legacy of innovation dating back to the 19th century when John and James Chivas pioneered a spirit of exploration in Aberdeen. Their relentless pursuit of flavour led to the creation of the Chivas Extra 13 range, an ode to their audacity. This exceptionally sweet whisky, finished in rum casks, marries the luxurious Chivas house style with tropical influences. With a nose redolent of citrus, a palate bursting with juicy orange, apricot jam, and honey, and a finish characterised by lingering sweetness and a hint of cinnamon, it promises a sensory journey like no other. Priced at ₹5090 and available exclusively at Delhi, Bombay, and Bangalore airports, it stands as a testament to Chivas’ commitment to pushing the boundaries of taste and tradition.

Jameson Caskmates emerges from a unique collaboration between Jameson and Cork’s Franciscan Well Brewery, where our triple distilled whiskey undergoes a transformative aging process in craft stout-seasoned oak barrels. While retaining our hallmark smoothness, this innovative union infuses the whiskey with tantalising notes of cocoa, coffee, and butterscotch, affirming the stout’s influence. With an aroma evoking freshly cut hay, crisp orchard fruits, and subtle pot still spices, the journey progresses to a taste characterised by the initial sweetness of Irish pot still, enhanced by hints of hops and cocoa beans from the beer cask finish. Its finish, long and sweet with echoes of milk chocolate and butterscotch, leaves a lasting impression. Priced at ₹3790 and available exclusively at Delhi, Bombay, and Bangalore airports, Jameson Caskmates stands as a contemporary icon of Irish whiskey craftsmanship, inviting all to indulge in its head-turning allure.

Inspired by a moment of revelation during a leisurely cup of Jamaican Blue Mountain coffee, Signet emerges as a testament to Dr. Bill’s visionary approach as our Director of Whisky Creation. Born from spiralling mocha flavours that lingered in his thoughts, Signet embodies years of meticulous craftsmanship, marrying the intensity of our precious chocolate malt spirit with the richness of rare casks. Distilled once a year in our lofty stills, its espresso-like aroma fills the air with the allure of an Italian coffee bar, while bourbon and sherry casks contribute creaminess and sweetness, balanced by the spice of virgin charred oak and some of our oldest whisky. The result is a velvet explosion of flavour, where bursts of bitter mocha, sizzling spice, and waves of dark chocolate intertwine with mellow butterscotch. Priced at ₹50,900 and available exclusively at all airports, Signet offers a whisky experience unlike any other, where crackling spices, dark toffee, and crystallised orange peel dance on the palate, culminating in a finale of chocolate-coated raisins and orange.
