In case you missed it, Sunday night (20th October) was a pretty big day for Manchester United Football Club (MUFC) as they went head to head with arch rivals Liverpool at the Old Trafford Stadium.
While United managed to end Liverpool’s 17-game winning streak in the English Premier League with a 1-1 draw, the moments leading up to the thrilling showdown was celebrated in exceptional style back here thanks to Chivas Regal Malaysia.
Together with MUFC, Chivas arranged for a fantastic 3-day pop-up event called Chivas The Blend at from 18th to 20thOctober at the Bukit Kiara Equestrian Club in Kuala Lumpur.
With a glass of Chivas’ warm scotch in one hand and a smile on their face, here’s 5 incredible moments that visitors loved from the Chivas & Man Utd Football Club pop-up event!
1. A Whisky Masterclass
Fans of the Scottish spirit got the chance to blend a whisky concoction of their very own creation under the watchful eye of Chivas Brand Ambassador for Malaysia Jasper Epsom.
2. A Mini Music Festival with a Theatrical Twist
Did you know that Chivas XV does more than just whisky? They actually created a pretty cool musical experience called Electronic Theatrical Music (ETM). Just like a blended whisky that’s full of surprises, the ETM is a blend of various artistic performances and endeavours into nightlife.
So it’s a trippy experience where electronic music meets ballet, opera, gymnastic contortions, dancers and even illusionists!
At the pop-up event, the 90-minute theatrics was led by Sumo Eleven with catchy beats by locally renowned DJ duo B.A.T.E.
PS: This high octave musical experience will soon be coming to selected clubs in Malaysia, so stay tuned for updates!
3. Cocktail Concerts
Listen, Chivas really loves putting on a jaw-dropping show so even the event cocktails are a performance piece.
Before enjoying the 5 bespoke Chivas cocktails and their myriad of floral, citrus, fruity, creamy or smoky flavours, visitors got to witness world-class mixologists shaking up the drinks in sync with a laser light show!
4. A fine dining show
What does one eat to match a superb glass of scotch? Well, Chef Raymond Tham of BETA KL had an answer.
By some stroke of genius (and maybe magic), he crafted a delectable yet super fun multi-sensory 15-course canapé dining experience to complement the complex 85 flavours blend found in the Chivas 18.
In fact, diners had the time of their lives deconstructing the enchanting dishes!
5. The Match Day Grand Finale
Despite all the hypnotic excitement of Chivas The Blend, no one could forget highly anticipated Man Utd vs Liverpool match.
In the Theatre of Dreams - which was essentially a dome theatre – psyched football fans watched the entire match in great detail as it was broadcasted on a 360 degrees screen including the ceiling!
There you have it, ALL the incredible moments from the Chivas & Man Utd Football Club pop-up that took place last weekend!
