Here at The Glenlivet we've never been afraid to mix things up.
Our mission is to open the world of single malt to all. Our new campaign, "Original by Tradition" shows our tradition breaking traditions, in whisky and in culture in order to move things forward and set new standards.
This whisky has been called a lot of things in its time: smooth, fruity, complex, sophisticated, entertaining, classic. Representing The Glenlivet's signature style, this classic malt is matured in traditional oak, before spending time in American oak casks which impart notes of vanilla and gives the whisky it's distinctive smoothness.
Our founder, George Smith, was the first licensed distiller to make whisky in Speyside in 1824, and now more than half of Scotland's distilleries are based here. Whiskies here tend to be rich, fruity and floral, but there are some that are light, sweet and youthful, and others that are well sherried and thick.
Over the decades, single malts at The Glenlivet and most other Speyside whiskies have slowly evolved from being more robust and peaty to being sweeter and lighter. That's how all our tastes have changed.
