- The brand
Dubbed simply The Glenlivet, a name which at the time represented a region extremely well-loved for the quality of its whiskies, this distillery was first granted its licence in 1824. Seen as an act of bravery for some and an act of betrayal for others, this allowed it to get a step ahead of the other distilleries in operation. Today one of the most prominent distilleries in Scotland, its single malt is known throughout the world. Mainly matured in ex-bourbon casks, The Glenlivet has a fresh and spring-like character marked by citrus and floral notes. Bottlings aged entirely in sherry casks can only be found through independent bottlers such as Gordon & MacPhail.
