This Man Utd whisky tie-up has been inspired by Alex Ferguson
You won't find it anywhere near Manchester, though
The Scotch whisky Chivas Regal has taken its role as the Official Global Spirits Partner of Manchester United to new levels by creating a whisky inspired by the Premier League team.
Sandy Hyslop, Director of Blending at Chivas said the whisky had been created to celebrate Sir Alex’s “rare genius and unique ability to drive success”. “Just as Sir Alex’s legacy lives on, we hope that, with our first ever 13-year-old and its inimitable selective American rye cask finish, we’ve created a blend that won’t soon be forgotten,” he added. And, the brand hasn’t held back on the packaging either. The box is bright red (like the club) and covered in black and white photos of Sir Alex and Old Trafford. It even has his signature in gold script. If you’re over in the States and fancy getting your hands on a bottle, this limited edition whisky will be available this autumn for $34.99.
