GLENLIVET FOUNDER'S RESERVE

40% ABV. (700 ML.)

Place of Origin: Scotland

To truly capture the essence of George Smith’s vision, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve has been created using the time-honoured distillation methods that he introduced so long ago. Made with water from the same crystal-clear mountain streams, in the same cold, pure air, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is as smooth and fruity as the whiskey that first ran from the original copper pot stills. These unique, lantern-shaped copper stills, designed by the man himself, are not the only important tools in our distilling legacy. The traditional oak casks in which we mature the whiskey give each expression its own distinct characteristics. When George Smith began distilling, The Glenlivet had no age statements and he selected whiskey from casks of a range of ages. We have replicated this freedom with The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve, selecting whiskey from a variety of traditional aged oak casks. Then, to lend a modern twist to the flavour of the expression, Master Distiller Alan Winchester marries together a selection of the aged oak casks and American first-fill oak casks. American first-fill oak casks are those that have never before been used to mature whiskey. Selective use of these casks provides a smooth, creamy sweetness that mingles harmoniously with the delicate flavours and complex fruity tones already present in the whiskey.
