ORIGINAL BY TRADITION
Our founder George Smith was the first in the glen to legally distill single malt
whisky nearly 200 years ago. He established himself as an original thinker
and defined the Speyside style of whisky, and now doing things differently
is simply the way we get things done.
Our mission is to open the world of single malt to all. Our new campaign,
“Original by Tradition” shows our tradition is breaking traditions, in whisky and
in culture in order to move things forward and set new standards.
THE GLENLIVET 12 YO

including American and European Oak.

imparts vanilla notes and gives the whisky its distinct smoothness.
The mineral rich water from Josie's Well ensures the best possible results
during mashing and fermenting to form the flavours that define this expression.
