Single Malt Scotch WhiskyWinner of the 2020 International Spirits Competition (ISC) Gold award.
The Glenlivet 15 Year Old is a 40% ABV Speyside single malt whisky which is deep gold in colour and leaves behind traces of sweet almond spice. The 15 Year Old gets its distinctive rich and exotic character from a process of selective maturation in which a proportion of the spirit is matured in French oak casks. The Limousin oak we use is cut in France’s Dordogne region, where it’s often used to mature cognacs. Its low density allows whisky to sink deep into the wood, and we carefully control how long the whisky matures in the casks so as not to overpower the desired result: a unique, pleasing spiciness.Serving suggestion: Drink to your own preference; straight up, in a cocktail, or simply with a drop of water to open the creamy, smooth character. When serving with ice, large cubes are recommended to allow slow dilution releasing the creamy, sweet characters.
George Smith, The Glenlivet's founder, didn't follow the lead of the illegal still owners. In 1824, he obtained a distiller's licence to become the first legal distiller in Glenlivet, Scotland. 50 years later, George finally won the exclusive right to call his whisky ‘THE Glenlivet', definitively marking it as the single malt that started it all. To this day, The Glenlivet remains the benchmark that all other Speyside single malts are measured against.
The Glenlivet 15 Year Old is sold with its signature gift box, making it the perfect gift to offer for a Christmas present, or for anniversaries, birthdays, Father's Day, Mother’s Day and other special occasions.
