In the remote and wild Livet Valley in Scotland was Glenlivet founder George Smith. There he honed his whisky distilling skills…while hiding from customs officers and soldiers!

In 1822 King George IV arrived in Scotland and requested a dram of the (illegal and infamous!) Glenlivet whisky. A couple of years later and some changes to the legislation George was the first legal distiller in the parish of Glenlivet.

In later years other distillers tried to rip off George’s Glenlivet brand but until a eureka moment and a magic three letter word – T.H.E. From 1884 as part of a historic agreement only The Glenlivet was the only whisky legally about to use the Glenlivet name.

Glenlivet were one of the first to use French oak to age their scotch whiskies and this 15 year old aged whisky is aged in Limousin oak from the French region of Dordogne. This is an area where this type of oak is typically used to age French cognacs. The result is a whisky you’ll find sweet, sooth, fruity, nutty with a slight cinnamon spiciness.

Enjoy neat or on the rocks. Or how about a cocktail? We reckon it’s got to be The Glenlivet Boulevardier.
