You may recall a time when myself and the team took a trip down to the Truman brewery, for an intimate session of whisky blending whilst talking all things about the love for Chivas Regal.
We did hear through whisky infused grapevine that the blend sessions (actual whisky blending pop up) will make its return in autumn 2017, which will no doubt keep you informed on!
Now there’s a chance for you all to re-live some of these conversations for yourself, thanks to the new podcast series aptly named The Blend Sessions. Officially landed on June 1st the blend sessions is the new podcast series from Chivas Regal blended Scotch whisky that brought a group of creatives together from all walks of life, simply to chat away all things culture.
Each week you us listeners will have ours ears blessed by the tales of two creative figures, hosted by the notorious style director; Teo Van Broeke. Topic at hand will be focused on how collaboration and the blending of skills has shaped the way their work has come through, as well as build on their successes.
Now when we say creative stories we don’t mean it will be all about one variation of the term creative. In fact this will span out into so many other creative realms such as art, photography, food, fashion, literature and much more. We can’t wait to tune into to some real inspiring and informative back stories to get us thinking on where to create next.
The Chivas Blend sessions will be hosting out a number of hosts such as:
- Acydex Tremaine (1st June, 2017): Two of the most culturally influential men in the world right now – New Yorker Tremaine Emory, and his London counterpart Aycde – talk creativity; covering fashion, art and music from one side of the Atlantic to the other.
- Jackson Boxerx Jeremy Lee (6th June, 2017): Two acclaimed London chefs who have reinvigorated British dining and London’s restaurant scene. Between them, they’re creating some of the most exciting food right now, whilst running two of the best kitchens (Quo Vadis and Brunswick House Café) in Europe.
- Reggie Yatesx Dan Davies (15th June, 2017): Two men who came from very different areas of the media to reinvent the art of documentary storytelling in the UK – follow their journey as they discuss how they did it.

- Jonathan Yeox Bafic (29th June, 2017): Whilst both produce very different work, these British artists share a restless desire to bring new techniques and ideas into old forms and to push British art to new, unfamiliar places.
- David Nicholls x Camilla Way(6th July, 2017): Bestselling author behind the likes of One Day and Starter For Ten, and former magazine hack discuss how careers in acting and magazines gave them the skills, impetus and ideas needed to take on the world of literature.
