PRODUCER: The Glenlivet distillery, owned by Pernod Ricard. After a few years of illicit distilling, in 1824 George Smith rode from the remote and isolated Livet valley to Elgin to seek the first legal distilling licence in the parish. In 1884 the company became the only distillers in the valley able to use the valley's name, by the simple and clever addition of the initial three-letter-word The. These many decades on, this Speyside dram remains as beloved as it was by King George IV and Charles Dickens.
PRODUCTION DETAILS: A classic and globally popular expression of The Glenlivet's signature style. After first maturation in traditional oak, further maturation takes place in American oak casks which creates the vanilla notes and gives it its distinctive smoothness. Mineral-rich water from Josie's Well helps to craft flavour during mashing and fermentation, while the height and width of the copper stills lend more character.
The Glenlivet's story begins in the isolated Livet Valley, where George Smith was illegally distilling his whisky before he even got his licence in 1824. Since then, this Speyside producer has grown to become one of the world's best-selling single malt brands. At the heart of the company's whisky range are products that are famous to lovers of the genre, such as The Glenlivet 12 Years and The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve.More about the Producer
