Glenlivet Founder's Reserve American Oak Selection

The remote and isolated Livet valley made it ideal for illicit distillation. This is where Glenlivet’s founder George Smith learned his craft. In 1824 Glenlivet became the first legal distillery in the area. By the late ‘30’s, Glenlivet distillery was producing more than 200 gallons a week. After a long battle for the Glenlivet name rights, in 1884 the distillery became ‘The Glenlivet’. To this day, Glenlivet continues George Smith’s vision to break traditions, set new standards and mode things forward, selecting exceptional unique casks, finishes and liquids to open up the world of single malt to all.

Boasting the classic flavours of The Glenlivet bound up in a creamy, smooth texture, this expression is their tribute to the one who started it all. It has been matured in traditional oak and American first fill casks.
