Mixologist Tony Conigiaro Pays Tribute To Chivas 18

Tony Conigliaro

To mark the prestigious collaboration Chivas 18 by Pininfarina, leading mixologist Tony Conigliaro has fittingly crafted a series of cocktails, which marry the influences of Italy and Scotland .

Widely recognised as the world’s foremost maverick in creating drinks, Tony Conigliaro has taken a series of classic cocktails and ingredients, inspired by his own Italian heritage, to create four Chivas 18 drinks which stimulate the senses and ensure every taste of these interpretations is a new experience.

Chivas 18 by Pininfarina is an aerodynamic limited edition design ‘The Drop’, inspired by air and liquid, which has taken the form of three expressions, uniting both houses in their ongoing quest for beauty, harmony and, ultimately, pleasure.

Both Chivas and Pininfarina share a rich heritage in crafting rewarding and stimulating experiences in luxury. Pininfarina has been a crusader in Italian design and engineering since 1930, Chivas Regal is the original luxury whisky blend, established in 1909. Tony Conigliaro’s career has seen him continually work to break boundaries surrounding the drinking experience and expand upon the idea of what a cocktail can be, using bespoke ingredients.

The cocktails that follow are designed to be re-created at home and have been carefully crafted to be as stimulating to the eye and nose as the palate – enjoy!

Camomile Sour

The Italians have a strong affinity with Chamomile, a floral herb they grow up with. Here, Chamomile adopts a very adult, sophisticated guise, infusing Chivas 18 in a delicious variation of the classic whisky sour.

Recipe – Per Serving

50ml Chivas 18
25ml Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice
25ml Egg White
15ml Chamomile Syrup
3 dash Angostura Bitters

Add the ingredients to a cocktail shaker (no ice) and shake. Add ice to the shaker and then hard shake. Strain and serve simply as it is in coupe glassware.


The Bellini is very popular in Northern Italy . This new Chivas 18 based interpretation offers complexity and depth.

Recipe – Per Serving
20ml Chivas 18
75ml Fresh Peach Juice
Add Chivas 18 and peach juice to a soda stream bottle and carbonate. Then serve in a champagne flute.

Chivas Rob Roy

Inspired by Scottish folk hero Robert Roy MacGregor, the old school version of the Rob Roy is similar to a Manhattan but Tony’s version also incorporates the very Italian spirit Vermouth.

Recipe – Per Serving
20ml Chivas 18
40ml Chivas Vermouth
2.5ml Maraschino Liqueur luxado
3 dash Angostura Bitters

Add the ingredients to an ice filled cocktail shaker and stir. Serve in a small coupette with a fresh cherry to garnish.


Tony has taken inspiration from the classic gin cocktail and substituted gin with Chivas 18.

The first Army & Navy recipe found by Tony is from 1948 so it could have been created in honour of the armed forces and it wasn’t long after the end of WWII. On the other hand, it may just have been created at the Army & Navy Club in Washington .

Recipe – Per Serving
50ml Chivas 18
25ml Lemon Juice (Fresh Squeezed lemon juice)
15ml Cherry Orgeat
Add to a cocktail shaker over ice and shake. Double strain and serve in Coupe glassware,
garnished each time with a lemon twist.

Chivas 18 Year Old is a luxurious blend of whiskies, hand-picked for their exceptional richness, including more than 20 of Scotland ’s rarest single malts, aged for a minimum of 18 years.

Chivas 18 Year Old by Pininfarina is available globally now. See chivas.com for details.
