Renowned today for its flawlessly smooth style, The Glenlivet dates back to 1824, when George Smith founded the first licensed distillery in the parish of Glenlivet, and the single malt that started it all was born

The Glenlivet introduces The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish, the third expression in its celebrated Nàdurra artisanal range, which explores the subtle nuances of new and innovative cask experiences. Inspired by the distillery’s authentic production processes — when George Smith used peat smoke to dry the malted barley — the whisky is finished in American oak casks that previously held heavily peated Scotch whisky.

This gives the new expression an elegant, sultry, gently smoked taste profile. The aromatic, sophisticated notes are perfectly balanced with the classic, smooth, fruity house style, for which The Glenlivet single malt has been famous since 1824.

Exploring the legacy of this global favourite, The Glenlivet has also launched the Master Distiller’s Reserve range, a new series exploring the journey through craft and cask. Exclusively available to international travellers through global travel retail, the range consists of three triple-cask matured single malt whiskies.

This inspiring signature collection is presented by The Glenlivet Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, and showcases the unrivalled character of the brand. Joining the exisiting Master Distiller’s Reserve are the Master Distiller’s Reserve Solera Vatted and Master Distiller’s Reserve Small Batch, matured in three different types of cask: the finest traditional oak, American oak and ex-sherry oak casks, producing a flawless “three-dimensional” finish.

The Glenlivet has a pioneering spirit, with a heritage founded in Scotland’s Speyside region, which is demonstrated today through innovative new expressions and the online community for brand fans, The Guardians of The Glenlivet.

These additions to the range elegantly showcase the unrivalled quality and character that has become part of the signature of The Glenlivet’s classic style —“the single malt that started it all”.

The Glenlivet Master Distiller’s Reserve range and Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish are available now in airports worldwide.
