In addition, each blend package uses CHIVAS' signature colors such as red, blue, purple, and gold to provide lively wave patterns, giving a strong mood. This patterns express CHIVAS as a blended whisky, which is even more special with the touch of "Rarebirth," who works across various fields, including graphic design and product design as well as album artwork.
