His definitive single malt inspired so many other distillers to adopt the appellation ‘Glenlivet’, that it became known as the “Longest Glen in Scotland”. In 1884 a legal agreement was reached to distinguish Smith’s original whisky by referring to it exclusively as ‘The Glenlivet’.
As master distiller, Alan Winchester’s role is to be the ultimate guarantor of the Glenlivet now and for the future to maintain the tradition established by George Smith.
Created by Glenlivet’s master distiller Alan Winchester, this exclusive travel retail release uses three different types of cask: Ex-Sherry, Traditional Oak and American Oak. Fruity, sweet, with a touch of spice to create a characterful and unique expression of the Glenlivet.
Colour: Bright and lively gold
Nose: Full and bursting with ripe fruity pear and soft fudge aromas, incredibly sweet and smooth
Palate: Fruity pear flavours with a spicy orange marmalade tang slightly dry
