The Glenlivet 18 Year Old description

The rich palate of the 18 Year Old is the result of a combination of several different cask types. The Glenlivet Master Distiller Alan Winchester has a wealth of quality casks to choose from when creating this complex expression, with first and second fill American and European Oak all playing their parts.

European Oak imparts spiciness and brings additional complexity and first-fill American Oak adds soft tropical fruitiness.

Knowledge Bar

Such was the success of whisky from Glenlivet distillery by the 1880s that the name ‘Glenlivet' began to be adopted by other distillers to make it clear that their whisky came from the same area - riding on the coat-tails of success, if you will.

John Gordon Smith, son of the founder George Smith, had to obtain a court order in 1884 stating that only his whisky could be called ‘The' Glenlivet. Anyone else was then required to hyphenate the name - e.g. Glenfarclas-Glenlivet, Tamdhu-Glenlivet, Macallan-Glenlivet, etc.

Come the 1950s, nearly 30 distilleries were using the hyphenated form, some of them many miles from the Glenlivet itself - giving rise to it being called ‘the longest glen in Scotland'!
