The Glenlivet distillery produces Speyside single malt Scotch whisky near Ballindalloch in Moray, Scotland. It continued to operate, even during the Great Depression, since its founding in 1824. It ceased operation during World War II by government decree, though. Today, Glenlivet is the biggest-selling single malt whisky in the United States and second in the global best-selling chart.
George Smith was the founder of the Glenlivet brand and the first succeeder to attain the license to produce spirits legally. During the 1700s, George and other distilleries were operating illegally until the Excise Act in 1823 became effective. George and his youngest son, John Gordon Smith, received their license and established the Glenlivet distillery in 1824.
George established a second distillery in 1849 and by 1855, even at full capacity for both distilleries, was unable to meet rising demand. George decided to build a new and bigger distillery and production commenced at the new plant in 1859. The Distillery draws water from Josie’s Well and the malt comes from Portgordon, a small village in Moray, while the bottling is done in the Chivas Brothers plant.
Glenlivet 15 Years is a Speyside single malt Scotch whisky and a portion is selectively matured in French oak casks. The French Limousin oak used is cut from France’s Dordogne region. Its low density allows the whisky to sink deep into the wood for a unique spiciness. Bottled at the standard 40% ABV.
