Product Description

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 whisky 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 Glenlivet's distilling legacy. The traditional oak casks in which they mature the whisky give each expression its own distinct characteristics.

When George Smith began distilling, The Glenlivet had no age statements and he selected whisky from casks of a range of ages. The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve carries on this tradition, selecting whisky 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 whisky.

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 whisky.
