Chivas is a product of unique origin, a proud lineage of whisky makers and more than two centuries worth of history since the year 1840. This brand of whisky which is produced by the Chivas brothers and owned by Pernod Ricard, has won numerous gold medal awards. This highly sought after Scotch was an immediate success since its introduction to the market and has been a long-time favourite among real Scotch connoisseurs as well as members of the well to do stratum of the society. Chivas can be found only in the hands of the upper echelon such as those attending the Cannes Film Festival etc. in the South of France. On the other hand, the InterContinental brand came into being in the year 1946 when the Pan American airways launched their International Hotel brand, its first opening was in Belem, Brazil, then extended a trailblazing portfolio across the world with over 170 hotels in 60 different countries. Many guests will walk the black carpet attending in anticipation of the unveiling of what will be the best hotel ever in Nigeria. InterContinental brand has become a byword for luxury travel to a jet-set generation with an impressive guest list; from Louis Armstrong to Princess Grace. Chivas in the past has associated with movies stars like Frank Sinatra and has also been a sponsor of the Cannes film festivals for a number of years. “We are delighted and privileged to be hosting such a prestigious event at InterContinental Lagos," said Didier Coeln, General Manager "and we look forward to growing our partnership with Chivas and welcoming the esteemed Nigerian society to experience the newest and most luxurious hotel in Lagos." The evening which will treat guests to a 6 course meal, entertainment set in the 20s and much more launches Chivas scotch into the Nigerian market. Chivas...Live with Chivalry!
