It was the per­fect pair­ing on Thurs­day night when lux­u­ri­ous Chivas Re­gal Ultis met be­spoke menswear brand Row-G at their de­sign stu­dio in the Quince Street Lofts in Mil­park. The launch of the new sin­gle malt whisky (well, it’s ac­tu­ally made of “five hand­picked sin­gle malts”) started off slowly, but a few sips in the room be­gan fill­ing up with those lucky enough to be the first to taste the new of­fer­ing from Chivas. We were schooled in how best to taste a sin­gle malt – first with the eyes, then the nose and only then the lips. Celebri­ties were a lit­tle thin on the ground, but ra­dio star and busi­ness­man Thabo “Tbo Touch” Molefe came through later in the evening. For many it was also a chance to get to know the beau­ti­fully crafted menswear created by Rahim Raw­jee, who has de­signed for the likes of for­mer US pres­i­dent Barack Obama. Chivas will host a series of Ultis tast­ing events this month, cul­mi­nat­ing in an ex­clu­sive launch party to be hosted by ac­tor and Chivas am­bas­sador Don Chea­dle. If you need a bot­tle for your­self, be pre­pared to say bye to R2 200.
