The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve
The opening salvo of the Glenlivet range, named in honour of the distillery’s founder, George Smith. It’s classic Glenlivet, with a creamy and fruity character bolstered by the use of first-fill American oak to mature some of the whisky.
First revealed towards the end of 2014, the Founder’s Reserve is now available in the UK and will be replacing The Glenlivet 12-year-old in many of the mature markets despite initial indications that it would sit beside it, broadening the entry-level options. Named in tribute to distillery founder George Smith, it’s packaged in Georgian blue.
