the Glenlivet’s story begins in the isolated Livet Valley, where George Smith was illegally distilling his whisky before he even got his licence in 1824. Since then, this Speyside producer has grown to become one of the world’s best-selling single malt brands. At the heart of the company’s whisky range are products that are famous to lovers of the genre, such as The Glenlivet 12 Years and The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve.
