|Brit designer Alexander McQueen tries his hand at whisky|

British designer Alexander McQueen has added some fashion-world glamour to whisky, by creating a limited edition ‘couture' bottle of Chivas Regal 18 Year Old.
Launched in time for Christmas, the royal blue bottle design features leather detailing and comes with a hand-enamelled cap.
"This is a piece of art which reflects the luxury and craftsmanship values of what Haute Couture is all about," said McQueen.
"You can see my signature 'stamp' with the blue leather 'dress' and the Union Jack colours. I have created a rare collector's item that those with an eye for design will want to keep."
A bottle will set whisky-lovers back £300, and just to add that air of exclusivity, there will only be a limited run of 2,000.
