Chivas Regal and Green Tea are more than just the glory of the millennium
Fashion is always a circle, circle and circle.
Nowadays, the aesthetic is back in fashion, and it is popular to return to the millennial trend.
Walking down the street, you can see the relevant millennial fashion elements on the major trendy people.
High-saturation suits, candy-colored bags, bold braided hair, low-rise jeans/cropped tops with a vibrant and cool feel, and accessories in plastic PVC or laser or shiny metallic colors, at this time, you and I are walking retro-futuristic warriors, but if you look closely at your ID card, you will find that there is a round of difference.
There is also another group of retro futurists who have set their sights on Hong Kong in the millennium, after all, there is no new generation of the Four Heavenly Kings now.
Absorb experience points from the handsome men and beautiful women of the year, and focus on a practical and modern.
Fluffy thick hair, matte makeup, wild eyebrows, plus a neutral minimalist leather jacket or padded shoulder suit or denim piece or coat. Sometimes when walking on the road, I feel like I am passing by countless Aaron Kwok Zhong Chuhong.
In recent years, in addition to the reproduction of clothing and makeup, electronic devices have also made a comeback.
Even though the camera has evolved to the level of shooting 100 million pixels, CCD and retro DV cameras are still fashion items for many people, because of the retro flavor that comes out directly. What I want is this sense of atmosphere with low fidelity and brilliant colors.
Some people think that buying these things is buying e-waste, but others think that it is a ticket to have a time back.
"I can't go back to that era after eating the children's paradise package, but these things that can go straight to the old sense can take me back, and Chivas Regal with green tea is also a time and space portal. ”
Chivas Regal + Green Tea = Tears of the Times?
The turn of the century brings with it tension and fear, but also longing and anticipation. In that era of rapid development, there were many products full of imagination, imagination and optimism for the future.
In addition to the vigorous development of clothing, food, housing and transportation, the night market was also a scene full of vitality. After all, when the economy takes off and the purse becomes rich, it wants to pursue spiritual consumption. KTV and nightclubs became one of the channels for young people to release hormones at that time.
After dinner at home, the nightlife officially begins.
Some people continue to watch TV at home, and some people travel with their families and invite three or five relatives to gather together at KTV to howl a few songs.
There are also young people who solo alone, change into battle suits, make appointments with three or five friends, go straight to the nightclub, and walk into places full of colorful light scattering, reflection and direct raying.
As soon as the music played, the dance floor began to bustle. At a time when the top 100 international DJs were not yet used to raise the party style, some of the biggest hits of the era were massaging the ears of night club players.
Some people are jumping on the dance floor to enjoy the dancing youth, and some people are socializing at the booth.
If the current nightclub popular "finger grabbing" and "tearing tissues" belong to agile games, then the previous night games are biased towards wits games.
Alex, a foreign student, came to Guangzhou for short-term Chinese study and also went to a bar along the river road a few times. Under the actual combat of the fun games of "Big Talk" and "Every Seven Must Pass", mathematics has also improved.
Some people are starting to get into a state of confusion, and some players are still a little bit unable to let go. After all, the social heating rate of people I and E people is not the same.
Alcoholalcohol, alcohol at this time, is the shovel on the way to the icebreaker, the accelerant for emotional warming.
At that time, players who were tired of drinking beer and wanted to advance turned their attention to Chivas Regal, a whisky that represented "foreign style and fashion" at that time.
At the beginning of the 90s, Chivas Regal was one of the first whisky brands to enter China, and for young people at that time, Chivas Regal was the overlord of night clubs. At that time, the most fashionable and popular way to drink it was Chivas Regal Green Tea, and every nightclub and KTV had a corresponding set meal.
"I spent all my luck in my life in participating in [One More Bottle], but I bought another bottle of Chivas Regal for 12 years, and the sales also gave me 6 bottles of green tea + fruit plate + brine platter to get a spiritual subsidy. ”
Some places send 4 bottles, and some places send 12 bottles
The cousin, who has always claimed to be a fashionable cousin, can't help but recall the night he met his first whisky.
Ice cubes, Chivas Regal and iced green tea blend together, and the mouth is sweet and soft, like a person who has walked in the desert for two days and eats his first watermelon pulp. Then, before I knew it, I had one glass after another, and at 2 a.m., I had completed the KPI of drinking eight glasses of water a day.
The same story happened to someone else.
Many people are slowly overwhelmed by alcohol in this seemingly light tea fragrance.
"In the beginning, there was more green tea and less Chiva, which was not drunk and delicious. When everyone is acquainted, there will be more Chivas Regal and less green tea. ”
"Chivas Regal is a blended whisky, Chivas Regal + green tea, isn't this a 'blended' blended whisky?"
Later, some people let themselves go on the dance floor, some people dared to shout eight ones, some people sang "Rewind" regardless of whether the sound was broken or not, some people said that they talked from their hearts, some people were emotional mediators, and some people rushed to pay, we all have a bright future.
David has been in bars for many years, and although David, who is now in his mid-seventies, no longer goes to nightclubs, he still misses the youth when there was no fame and fortune, only happiness, the energetic self and the group of simple and pure friends.
"Although the eldest brother in the back of the seat was opening expensive champagne, and my brother and I pooled together to pay for a Chivas Regal set meal, we had our own happiness. When you can completely let yourself go, you run to the middle of the dance floor and dance. I was tired from dancing until 3 o'clock, and I thought that the taxi fare would cost 30 yuan, so I decided to continue dancing, and jumped to the subway and went back. ”
As for who was the first to invent "Chivas Regal + Green Tea", this trendy drinking method is no longer known, but many versions have been circulated in the rivers and lakes.
It is rumored that at a dinner party, someone accidentally poured hot green tea and whiskey together, but there was an unexpected tongue-in-cheek joy, so it spread among dog friends.
There are also rumors that it comes from the genius of a Chivas Regal salesman. At that time, the masses were not accustomed to the taste of whisky and felt that it smelled peaty, so the sales of whisky were not good. When the salesman was patrolling the night market, he found that a certain box consumed a lot of Chivas Regal, mixed with green tea and drank it, and let out a happy laughter that could not be stopped by the crack in the door. So the salesman immediately reacted to the bar and promoted this novel combination.
No matter which version you choose to believe, there's a highly unified perception that every night goer has a cup of Chivas Regal and green tea in their stomachs, and if not, seven cups.
After a few night backs and forths, many of the moves have been mastered, a novice is fading, and a big dice master or dance master or High C soprano master is generating.
What remains unchanged is that they will still order a Chivas Regal Green Tea set, which is like adding blue bars to themselves and their companions, and unleashing a skill called happiness.
The OG of the night show is still leading the way
Founded in the 19th century by brothers James and John Chivas, the Scotch whisky brand Chivas Reveras blends craftsmanship, heritage, premium malt and grain whisky, and is a symbol of style, substance and personality. With its smooth and mellow taste and excellent quality that has been passed down to the present day, Chivas Regal 12 years has become the enlightenment liquor for Chinese people to drink whisky, and has become a classic blended whisky OG.
But the classics were not classics at the beginning, because they withstood the test of time, so they became a good story for later generations, making every year a year of fighting.
Today, Chivas Regal 12 Years Old is still a whisky beginner that you can enjoy with your eyes closed.
Of course, I believe that there are also people who stand on the shoulders of giants and want to seek a little bit of novelty, and keep exploring. Today, Chivas Regal Trendy Flavours can be a more versatile option for you and me.
The Chivas Regal Trendsetting range is made up of three flavoured cask whiskies.
Cask-passing, in which the distiller places the whisky that has matured into other oak barrels that have been previously aged for another type of spirit, and continues to mature for a period of time.
Passing through the barrel will make the wine have a richer taste and multi-layered flavor, so that when you taste the wine in your mouth, you can't help but say, "Nice!"
In the Chivas Regal Trendsetting Flavour Collection, you have three cask flavours to choose from.
Choose a soft bourbon barrel and feel a warm wrap with creamy vanilla and cinnamon flavors on the palate on this winter day.
There is also the option of a Mexican agave barrel for a rich exotic flavor.
Legend has it that Hemingway drank 17 glasses of whiskey a day because it took him to the borders of the universe.
I didn't ask for much, I just wanted to go to a summer island team building, and the boss heard about it and handed me a cup of Chivas Regal with agave barrel flavor.
"Citrus, pineapple, grapefruit, vanilla, ginger with mint and pineapple. ”
At this time, the multi-layered aroma of tropical herbs launches a long attack in the mouth, and the person at the workstation has a Mexican party in the heart.
Over-barrel whiskey is common, but over-rye barrel is uncommon. For a full-bodied flavor, this collection of American rye barrels is an excellent choice.
The front is sweet with citrus honey, and then there is a spicy and playful feeling of ginger and nutmeg.
Overall, the cask whisky of the Trendy Flavor series brings a surprising new taste to the taste buds. A variety of flavors to meet your individual needs.
This bottle is not a barrel.
I remember that there is a text in the primary school Chinese textbook called "Amber".
Tens of thousands of years ago, the hot midday sun caused the old pine trees to ooze thick pine resin, wrapping and solidifying the spiders that were about to catch flies. Eventually, the pine balls were fossilized and appeared on the beach 10,000 years later.
This showed me the power of time.
"xxx has become the tears of the times", which originally meant that something was so ancient that it made people cry tears.
I think it can also be interpreted in this way, something is popular at a certain stage, and although it has become a "classic" in the current context, as long as it can still be innovative, it can still bring a sense of "popularity" to the current newcomers.
The body of the whisky is translucent amber, and when you drink it many years later, your taste buds are stimulated, and you are reminded of someone or something. The time that has passed is in front of you, spread out.
At this time, you have grown and precipitated.
A year ago, my cousin asked her cousin, "My 25th birthday is approaching, when will I be given Chivas Regal 25 years?"
Now, her cousin can boldly reply, "It can take you back to the millennium." ”
On December 09, Chivas Regal and RADI jointly held an offline millennial revival party to bring you back to the millennium.
Back to the classics, before the tide.
