Character Goatson
An homage to Scotch.
 
In 1824 George Smith made a daring move and got a license to legally produce single malt Whisky. Needless to say the neighboring smugglers weren’t all too happy about it, so for protection he had to carry not one, but two guns at all times. Imagine that!
 
Released in 2014, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve has been matured in first fill American oak. This wood gives it a spicy vanilla kick. The “founder” refers to George Smith, who gained his distilling license in 1824, and from that the legend of The Glenlivet was born. This expression of the World-renowned malt pays homage to the history of Glenlivet as well as the future. It has the typical Glenlivet fruity notes but is also packed full of caramel sweetness. The result is smooth and creamy, a very fine malt to dedicate to a very important man.

90% of all Scotch Whiskies sold are Blends.
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.
The USA is buying half of the bottles from The Glenlivet Distillery, which are single malts.
Scotch Whisky is seldom aged in new barrels. Bourbon and Tennessee Whiskey casks are usually used for maturation. In addition to that, Whisky is often matured or finished in various wine casks such as Sherry or Port.
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'.
