The fundamentally classic single malt Scotch whisky we all love.

George Smith was running an illegal still on the estate of the Duke of Gordon in the wee early 1800’s — to whom he covertly supplied the occasional dram. The Duke sponsored legislation in 1823 that made whiskey distilling legal in the UK, it just so happens that George Smith was the first one granted a license. Total coincidence.

Today The Glenlivet is one of the “Big Three” Single Malt producers. Their whiskies are Speyside in both location and character and the water for the mash comes famously from “Josie’s Well” nearby. The Glenlivet produces a wide variety of Single Malt agings and cask combinations, with the remaining spirit serving as an indispensable component in some of the most famous blends.

When Glenlivet decided to try to recapture the flavor and feel of George Smith’s original single malt — you know, the one that may or may not have been distilled in secret — they could have decided to name the limited edition “bootlegger,” scofflaw,” “tax dodger,” or “fugitive.” But they ultimately chose a different direction.

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is the original that set the standard for the signature Speyside style – smooth, balanced, and walks its own path.

Filled with opulent notes of marzipan, fresh hazelnuts, and fresh fruits along with soft floral sweetness, it's an easy-to-love dram.
