Italian design power house Pininfarina has a finger in most of the high-end design pies. After collaborating with Scottish scotch brand Chivas Regal in 2013 for a special edition that included display cases and a Chivas 18 Mascherone based on ‘The Drop’ theme, they are back with a new limited edition. The Chivas 18 by Pininfarina Chapter 2 Ice Drop is an innovative and elegant tool, which is tasked to produce ice cubes in the shape of liquid droplets.
The Chivas 18 by Pininfarina Ice Drop is another fine example of Pininfarina’s form and function based design philosophy. The craftsmanship of the Ice Drop is as you would expect from the top designer. Last November in time for the holidays, the two companies gifted the fancy ice cube maker to some of the world’s most prominent bars including the Artesian at the Langham Hotel, Nightjar, Happiness Forgets, the American Bar at the Savoy and the Connaught Bar at the Connaught Hotel.
To take celebrations to another level the two companies have created a complete package named Chivas 18 by Pininfarina Chapter 2 Ice Press. The kit made from high-grade silicon comes with two brushed steel tongs and a pair of Pininfarina designed “Drop” glasses. The complete set allows the Chivas or any other whiskey aficionados to enjoy their favorite tipple whenever wherever the way they want it. Limited to just 1500 pieces, the Chivas 18 by Pininfarina Chapter 2 Ice Press came with a $399 price tag.
Richard Black, Global Brand Director for Chivas Regal, commented, “Chivas 18 has a deep understanding of luxury and a proven history of working with iconic visionaries, and Pininfarina is a brand that is revered globally for its expertise in the world of design so our shared values of beauty, harmony, and craft made this a natural partnership for us.”
Chivas Regal also announced a special campaign named Every Drop in Singapore. A purchase of any Chivas 18 in the country from March 16th to May 15th, 2015 allows for automatic entry to the competition and a chance to win a weekend trip to a private island with friends.
