A Single Malt pleasure to the eye, nose, and palate.

George Smith was running an illegal still on the estate of the Duke of Gordon in the wee early 1800’s — who he supplied with 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. Today Glenlivet is one of the "Big Three" Single Malt producers. Their Whiskies are Speyside and the water for the mash comes famously from "Josie’s Well" nearby. Glenlivet produces a wide variety of Single Malt agings and cask combinations, with the remaining spirit an indispensable component in some of the most famous blends.

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old First Fill is normally a Travel Retail exclusive — meaning that you could previously only buy it in airports and on cruise ships. So it’s not surprising that die-hard Glenlivet fans haven’t tasted it yet. What sets the 12 yo "First Fill" apart is that — although it’s common to reuse casks many times — all of the Whisky has been aged in first-fill ex-Bourbon casks. It makes the flavors more intense. Treating the masterful Glenlivet Single Malt this way results in a truly impressive aroma and texture for a complete Single Malt experience.

Is Scotch always Scottish? What do you think? Yes. The answer is yes.
Categories of Scotch Whisky: Single malt, Blended malt (formerly called Vatted malt), blended, single grain and blended grain Scotch.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
In Holland, The Glenlivet has adopted the slogan 'Discover the single malt that started it all'.
