When George Smith founded the Glenlivet Distillery in 1824, his whiskeys had no indication of age. Alan Whinchester, now Glenlivet's Master Distiller, wanted to pay homage to the founder of the distillery with this Single Malt, without any indication of age, who created the reference whiskey of Speyside.
Whinchester used the same ingredients and distillation methods introduced by George Smith: pure mountain spring water; selection of the best Scottish malts; original copper stills, tall and narrow to give refinement and elegance to the whisky; aged oak barrels and first-fill American oak barrels carefully selected according to their aromas.
As Alan Whinchester himself states, quality is the golden rule of Glenlivet Distillery.

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 Winery
