Winning bid: £230.00
Lot number: 064-3732

The first distillery to take out a license after the Excise Act of 1823, the distillery was a favourite of King George the IV who demanded nothing but during a visit to Edinburgh in 1821 - three years before it was legal! Glenlivet has given it's name to the 'longest valley in Scotland', so called after several distilleries laid claim to the Glenlivet suffix to cash in on the distillery's sterling reputation but only one can call itself The Glenlivet.

A frequently-overlooked bottle in Glenlivet's Cellar Collection, perhaps as it remains one of the youngest of the series (even at 20 years old).

This is described by Jim Murray as 'sophistication and attitude rolled into one'.

Distilled: 1983

Bottled: 2003

46% ABV / 70cl
