The Glenlivet 12 Years of Age Single Malt Scotch Whisky
12 Years of age. In the beginning was The Glenlivet. When George Smith founded The Glenlivet Distillery in 1824, he resolved to create a single malt whisky of such exceptional quality that all other whiskies would be judged against it. He succeeded beyond his wildest dreams, although success did not come easily. Inhospitable terrain, harsh winters and violent hostility from distillers whose illicit livelihood was now threatened, all had to be endured. But George Smith pursued his vision unswervingly, shrewdly harnessing the mineral rich spring water of Josie's Well and exploiting the benefits of the unique Glenlivet climate. His priceless legacy is a supremely elegant whisky of rewardingly subtle complexity. The monarch and the aristocracy appreciated the rich taste of The Glenlivet whisky, which other distillers subsequently tried to march. But there is still only one single malt whisky that has the unchallengeable right to call itself The Glenlivet. Just as it was in the beginning. 40% Alc/Vol. Product of Scotland.
