Glenlivet 12 year old (2011 box)

Glenlivet 12 year oldHigh up in the remote area of Glenlivet, George Smith was the first to produce a whisky of such exceptional quality that it went on to define the taste of Speyside.

His definitive single malt inspired so many other distilleries to adopt the appellation ‘Glenlivet’, that it became known as the ‘longest Glen in Scotland’. In 1884 legal agreement was reached to distinguish Smith’s original whisky by referring to it exclusively as ‘The Glenlivet’.
