The Glenlivet occupies a rarefied spot among Scottish distilleries. The Glenlivet is made unhurried as time and care create the highest quality single malts. That’s why The Glenlivet can mature for up to 25 years and in some cases, even longer, developing that unmistakable sweet fruity flavour. By using carefully selected casks made from European oak and American oak, each malt takes on its own unique characteristics. As The Glenlivet gently matures, it ever-so-slowly evaporates. These invisible vapour trails are known as the “angels’ share”. Sadly, it means that thousands of gallons are lost annually – but so long as the whisky gods get a taste of The Glenlivet, it’s a sacrifice worth to make.
