Chivas Regal is a popular Scotch whisky made by the Chivas Brothers. The company was first established in 1801 in Aberdeen, Scotland. Chivas Regal is 80 proof, meaning it contains 40 percent alcohol. The calories in Chivas Regal are similar to those in other standard whiskies.

Calories

Chivas Regal whisky is often served "neat" -- consumed straight, with no mixers. A 1-oz. shot of Chivas Regal contains 69 calories. It does not have any fats, carbohydrates or sugars.

Comparison

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture Nutrient Database, a 1 oz. serving of a standard 80 proof whisky contains 64 calories. There are no carbohydrates, fats or sugars.

Considerations

Chivas Regal is used in many mixed drinks with other liquors, liqueurs and mixers. If you consume Chivas Regal in a mixed drink, the caloric value of your drink will be much higher than if you consume the whisky on its own.

Warnings

Chivas Regal is an alcoholic beverage and should be consumed responsibly. It can impair your ability to drive a car or operate machinery. The surgeon general warns that pregnant women should not drink alcoholic beverages because doing so increases the risk of birth defects.
