The 1800’s were a glorious time. Napoleon gets dethroned as Emperor of France, China’s Taiping rebellion eventually costs 20 million souls, and Aspirin was discovered – the ramifications of which nobody feels today. But a throwback you might appreciate, is the Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve.
Embodying the heart of founder George Smith’s original 1824 vision, this reinterpreted spirit is distilled in the same lantern-shaped copper stills he designed. Connoisseurs familiar with the brand will instantly recognize the classic fruitiness style the Glenlivet is renowned for.
Passed through a Spirit Safe, in time honoured tradition, then matured in traditional first fill American oak casks, drinkers will taste just a hint of creamy sweetness and exceptional smoothness.
Concocted and bottled in Speyside, this new expression aims to describe the core range of Glenlivet single malts. We suggest taking-in this no-age statement whisky on its own terms. Determined fans of the brand will certainly compare it to The Glenlivet’s iconic 12-year old bottles, but that kind of misses the point here.
This is an fruity sweet and creamy easy drinking whisky. No less meticulously crafted by Master Distiller Alan Winchester, designed as a throwback to whisky’s vibrant beginnings.
