The sumptuous new Chivas Regal 25 Year Old Scotch whisky launched at a glittering international event at the New York Public Library. Celebrities, VIP guests and media gathered to witness the return of the original Chivas Regal 25 to New York City almost one hundred years after its first introduction.

Hollywood star Julianne Moore wowed onlookers wearing a beautiful Lanvin dress complimented with Fred Leighton bracelets whilst Grammy Award-winning jazz artist Diana Krall provided the entertainment, creating the perfect blend of New York glamour and Scottish soul.

Oscar-nominated Julianne Moore, who received the first bottle on behalf of the city of New York, said: “Scotland has always been a part of my life but I am thrilled to be a New Yorker, it is the one place in the world I feel most at home. In New York, there is a tremendous sense of tolerance and community, in both a personal and global sense.”

Amongst the 400 international VIP guests were the stunning Lucy Liu, film star and director Daniel Wu wearing a tailored Gucci suit, and Wu’s partner supermodel Lisa Selesner. Movie star Lucy Liu said, “It’s my honour to come here tonight, it’s a beautiful event.”

Bollywood superstar Karan Johar and top Indian model Deepika Padukone were two more of the famous faces that had the honour of witnessing the first bottle being piped into the dinner by 25 pipers from the Fire Department of New York.

Chivas Regal Master Blender Colin Scott led the guests through the world’s first tasting of this sumptuous Scotch in the perfect venue of the New York Public Library. Scott described the new Scotch, launched to meet the growing global demand for luxury Scotch whisky, as his “life’s greatest achievement.”
