THE STORY OF OUR START

ENTER THE GLENLIVET
12 YEAR OLD ILLICIT STILL

In 1824, before our founder George Smith licensed his distillery, the remote Glenlivet valley was the perfect location for the illicit scotch whisky trade, with distilleries handcrafting in smaller copper stills in bothies well hidden from the law.

It was there in the isolated valley that George Smith would learn his craft. Slowly and carefully distilling what would soon become the world-renowned single malt scotch whisky that established the signature fruity floral Speyside style.

UNIQUE EXPRESSION

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still is inspired by our origins, and how our liquid was first crafted in the early 1800s. Bottled at 48% abv, this limited-edition malt has not been chill filtered, giving you an authentic taste of our history.
