The Glenlivet Distillery Reserve Collection is now available for pre-order through theglenlivet.com
The Glenlivet, the original Speyside single malt, has announced the release of three fine and iconic whiskies in the new Distillery Reserve Collection. The 10, 14 and 22 Year Old single cask editions showcase the finest Scotch craftsmanship mastered over decades. For the first time, The Glenlivet has made each of the 50cl bottles of the Distillery Reserve Collection available for pre-order from theglenlivet.com.
Each bottle of cask strength, non-chill filtered single malt captures The Glenlivet’s pioneering style and the spirit of the glen itself, with every sip bringing to life the ambiance of the distillery. Every signature bottle is drawn from a single cask by the makers themselves before being individually numbered to identify the age, cask type and bottling date.
The first in the collection is The Glenlivet Distillery Reserve Collection 10 Year Old first fill sherry cask, reminiscent of the comfort of the Speyside home with its warming and sweet notes. With flavours of juicy poached pears, raisin fudge and cinnamon, the whisky gives way to warming ginger and freshly baked glazed cinnamon buns. Only 849 bottles of this expression will be available.
The Glenlivet Distillery Reserve Collection 14 Year Old follows with a limited run of 700 bottles. The rich finish from the first fill sherry cask is rooted in the heritage of The Glenlivet distillery, releasing notes of toffee and dark chocolate. Every precious drop from this limited release delivers, with flavours of plum, ginger cake and toasted oak.
Completing the trio with a vibrant and tropical finish is The Glenlivet Distillery Reserve Collection 22 Year Old first fill American barrel, which is packed full of citrus flavour. Notes of pineapple and juicy mango reflect the bright and uplifting character of the whisky. The final release is limited to just 277 bottles available for purchase.
Linda Brown, Brand Home Manager at The Glenlivet commented:
“Usually, these limited-edition collections would be available only to guests visiting the distillery in person, however we’ve taken this opportunity to make them available for pre-order through our website for advocates and collectors of The Glenlivet across the world. The rare collection celebrates the very best the distillery and Speyside has to offer and is a testament to the rich, bold flavours our makers can achieve. The Distillery Reserve Collection offers something truly unique in terms of taste, quality and experience.”
The stylised labelling aims to showcase the authentic journey each expression has been on before it was pulled from the cask. The collection is available to pre-order exclusively on theglenlivet.com, and to be delivered straight to your door from early May.
