The Glenlivet 12 Year Old description

Known as 'the single malt that started it all' - The Glenlivet was the first licensed distillery in the parish of Glenlivet, established in 1824 and, in turn, defined the Speyside style of whisky which became the heartland of Scotch malt whisky production. The Glenlivet was the very first malt to be promoted in the US, as soon as Prohibition was lifted. The delicate and complex character of the 12 Year Old derives from the height and width of stills at The Glenlivet Distillery. This expression is matured in a mixture of cask types, including American and European Oak. Maturation in American oak imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness. The mineral rich water from Josie's Well ensures the best possible results during mashing and fermenting to form the flavours that define this expression.

Knowledge Bar

The Glenlivet has had a loyal following in the United States for many years. For example, when the Pullman train company started serving The Glenlivet in miniature bottles, commuters across the Midwest couldn't get enough of the single malt and word of the brand spread quickly. By 1950, The Glenlivet accounted for half of all the Scotch malt whisky sold in the US!
