Chivas Regal The Icon 50th Anniversary For Manchester United - 50 Year Old 70cl / 43%
10 September 2019
A bottle of Chivas Regal The Icon 50th Anniversary Limited Edition blended Scotch whisky. This 50 year old blend, the oldest ever bottled by Chivas Brothers, was created to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Manchester United's victory in the 1968 European Cup against Benfica.
The whisky comes in a hand-blown Dartington Crystal decanter featuring hand-carved metal crests in dark blue, the colour Manchester United wore in the 1968 final. The presentation box includes a glass stopper and a small book detailing the history of Chivas Brothers and the story of this bottling.
Only four bottles were released, one to represent each of the goals scored by Manchester United in their 4-1 extra-time victory over Benfica. One of the bottles was sold by Sotheby's in an online charity auction in 2018, one was housed in the Manchester United Museum before being sold at an end of season event in 2019, and one bottle is on display at Strathisla, the distillery at the heart of Chivas Regal.
This is one of four bottles.
