The first distillery to take out a licence after the Excise Act of 1823, the distillery was a favourite of King George IV who demanded nothing but Glenlivet during a visit to Edinburgh in 1821 - three years before it was legal! Glenlivet has given its 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.

This cask strength bottling is highly sought after by Glenlivet collectors. The casks are hand selected by Master Distiller Jim Cryle and represent the pinnacle of Glenlivet stock from the selected vintages. This is the sixth release in this award winning range.
