Chivas Regal Scotch Whisky & Globe-Trotter 'Made For Gentlemen' Cases

  Chivas Regal, a company that prides itself in carefully blending and aging malt and grain Scotch whiskies, have partnered up with Globe-Trotter luggage to offer a limited edition product partnership for the worldly traveler. Those with a passion for travel may enjoy this new collaboration between British luxury brands Chivas Regal and Globe-Trotter. By handcrafting luxury suitcases and leather goods, Globe-Trotter is producing a limited product line that compliments the Chivas alcoholic beverage via a series of three collectibles for the whisky connoisseur and world traveler.

The Chivas 12 'Made for Gentlemen' Globe-Trotter limited edition 20" carry-on cases and Chivas 12 'Made for Gentlemen' steamer trunk will be available strictly for a limited time (950 and 12,000 respectively). "Inspired by the tradition of applying stickers onto one's luggage to proudly showcase destinations visited, bespoke luggage stickers were hand-drawn by the British illustrator Andrew Davidson to celebrate iconic cities and adorn the contemporary tin design" says Globe-Trotter.

Their Carry-On Case is a 20" trolley case that has been crafted to suit the needs of the busy modern gentleman on short haul business trips and city breaks. Created to be stowed in the flight cabin of all international airlines, it features a customized lining that elegantly intertwines a never-seen-before Globe-Trotter archive design with the Chivas iconic signifier. A very sturdy vulcanized burgundy fiberboard case features wooden handles, brushed brass hardware and an internal leather plaque to hallmark the collaboration.

The Globe-Trotter Steamer Trunk is an original design, with proceeds of its sale being donated to charity. Every compartment is carefully handcrafted to aid the modern gentleman store and display his carefully chosen collection of must-have good. "A beautifully crafted mini bar with mirrored back for serving Chivas Regal Scotch whisky, the steamer trunk features specially created compartments for shoes, a drawer to hold up to eight watches, leather covered hangers to hold pristine suits, all against the backdrop of a bespoke lining that marries the semiotics of both modern heritage brands. American white oak trimmed drawers have been handmade to honour the oak casks essential to Chivas Regal 12YO's rich complexity and a hand engraved copper plaque made from a retired Scotch whisky still assures its authenticity".

"We are delighted to be partnering with GlobeTrotter for the fourth stage of our Made for Gentlemen journey," says Richard Black, Global Brand Director of Chivas Regal. "There are many synergies in our values and approach to craft. Modern gentlemen are constantly on the lookout for authentic, stylish experiences and products wherever they are in the world and we believe the three limited editions we co-created with Globe-Trotter could be a passport to just these types of experiences."

"It was a compelling and enjoyable exchange of ideas with Chivas from the first creative session," says James Fisher, Global Marketing Director of Globe-Trotter. "We even discovered Chivas Master Blender Colin Scott has travelled the world with Globe-Trotter luggage for much of his forty year career. Pieces of Globe-Trotter luggage are travelling companions for life and frequently become heirlooms wear and tear reflects the personal journeys of their owners. We really enjoyed designing the three limited editions that elegantly showcase our crafts in one-off, contemporary ways."

 

Both products will be on display starting October 5th within Globe-Trotter's flagship store on Albemarle Street, London.
