Were they Artists or Entrepreneurs? The Chivas brothers believed that they were more than that. They wanted to make a difference but felt that they couldn’t do that on their remote Scottish farm. To combat this, they started their journey, the first of many in fact.
This 3-day long walk took them to Aberdeen, a city that perfectly supported their big visions. After finding employment at an Aberdeen emporium, James Chivas was instantly captivated by the world of whisky. This is where the bigger picture emerged, and their next journey revealed itself – a journey that is still continuing 200 years later.
