The Glenlivet Scotch Whisky 12 Years Old  70 cl

Winner of the 2019 International Wine & Spirits Competition (IWSC) Gold award.

The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve is an award winning single malt scotch whisky from the Speyside region of Scotland. It captures the distinct, smooth, fruity taste that its founder first envisioned. It's a classic single malt style of whisky but with an innovative, fresh taste.

It starts with a skilful selection of casks that enhances the signature fruity flavours of The Glenlivet. The traditional oak casks are complemented by the selective use of American first-fill casks to give a hint of creamy sweetness - creating an exceptionally well-balanced and smooth malt.

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.

This classic whisky is sold with its signature blue gift box, making it the perfect gift to offer for Father's Day, Christmas, dinners, birthdays and other special occasions. It comes in a 70 cl (700 ml) bottle and has an ABV of 40%.
