Cocktail of the Week: Chivas Exclusive Lebua Blend

Speaking to Elite Traveler magazine, Deepak Ohri, CEO of lebua Hotels and Resorts, said, “With the lebua blend at Alfresco 64 – A Chivas Bar, the worlds highest whisky bar, we at lebua and the Chivas brothers jointly are very proud to add a new chapter not only to the hospitality industry but also to the luxury industry.”

At an impressive 800 ft up, Alfresco 64, a Chivas Bar, is now open at The Dome at Lebua. For the first time in the brand’s storied history, Chivas Regal has partnered with a hotel, Lebua Hotels & Resorts, to craft an exclusive blend of Scotch whisky to be enjoyed high in the sky.
Led by master blender Colin Scott, the Chivas Exclusive Lebua Blend was created by laying down the finest whisky – distilled in 1985 or earlier – in a selection of casks including American Oak. Following years of maturation, each whisky was individually nosed to select the best for the exclusive blend, then left in a first fill sherry butt for an additional nine years. Along with the sherry character of its a single cask, the blend has rich fruity notes and smooth flavor. Look out over Thailand’s capital city while you sip a custom scotch neat – at $1,000 a glass.
