Glenlivet 18 Year Single Malt Scotch
GOOD LUCK NOT DRINKING THE WHOLE BOTTLE IN ONE NIGHT.
This smooth sipper is most awarded Glenlivet expression.
The Glenlivet’s Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, has a wealth of quality casks to choose from when creating this complex expression, each of which has rested a minimum of 18 years in oak.
The European oak adds spicy notes and complexity and the first-fill American oak casks add the tropical fruitiness that makes it unmistakably The Glenlivet in style. Its golden hue bears testimony to its 18 years very well spent maturing.
After legally founding the distillery in 1824, George Smith’s whisky became hugely popular throughout the region and as far south as London.
The Glenlivet Distillery sits in a wild and remote glen, its history laced with drama and intrigue. In the early 19th Century, Glenlivet was the word for the best in whisky. Universally demanded by the aristocracy and the King, Glenlivet was the guarantee of a quality borne out of an unflinching conviction to product the best there was. In 1824 George Smith was granted the first legal licence to distil in Glenlivet. From this date on, only Scothc has had the right to call itself The Glenlivet.
Today, still considered the definitive Speyside malt produced in the Livet Valley, The Glenlivet exhibits the characteristic delicacy and softness of the region. It is acclaimed for its balance and perfect finish and is benchmark by which all other malts are measured.
The Glenlivet set the standard in quality and taste that went on to define the Speyside style of whisky. There were many imitators, but no equals. That’s why a landmark case in 1884 ruled in favour of our single malt being the only one that could call itself The Glenlivet. To this day, The Glenlivet remains the benchmark that all other Speyside single malts are measured against. We will always take great pride in setting that standard.
