We are pleased to introduce a global travel retail exclusive: The Glenlivet Triple Cask Series, which has been refreshed with a new name and packaging to better represent the triple cask maturation process that provides such a rich, distinctive taste to the whiskies. The new series is exclusively available in global travel retail.
The Triple Cask series is a signature collection from our expert team of distillers, with contributions from our Master Distiller, Alan Winchester. Through a skilful interplay of whiskies matured in three different types of cask, the Triple Cask Series amplifies the depth and complexity of the original floral, fruity taste of The Glenlivet single malt.
The three cask types of American White Oak casks, Traditional casks and Ex-Sherry casks have been married in varying proportions to produce three unique whiskies: Distiller’s Reserve, White Oak Reserve and Rare Cask.
Replacing our Master Distiller’s Reserve, the Distiller’s Reserve is the cornerstone of the range and exemplifies the skills our makers have mastered through decades of experience. They have ensured that the whiskies from the three different casks have an equal and harmonious impact on the taste to which results in a delicate balance between smooth and fruity notes.
The White Oak Reserve, which has replaced Master Distiller’s Reserve Solera Vatted, has a very high proportion of first fill American White Oak casks which create a deep, yet subtle profile, with creamy coconut and vanilla notes. For a richer, intense character, our craftsmen have also used the ‘never-emptied’ solera vat to complete the maturation for a sweet and velvety taste profile.
Coming soon - As the pinnacle of our Triple Cask Series, Rare Cask, which will replace Master Distiller’s Reserve Small Batch has a very high proportion of hand-selected first filled ex-sherry casks and is bottled and released in individually numbered small batches. This exceptional whisky has a wonderfully rich and spicy taste profile, thanks to the influence of the ex-sherry cask.
Commenting on this exclusive relaunch, our Master Distiller Alan Winchester shared his insight: “We wanted to open up the craftsmanship behind The Glenlivet to travellers around the world. We’ve evolved the packaging to highlight the quality of the whisky inside the bottle, and make it more approachable to consumers worldwide.”
Should you be travelling on business or to see family and friends be sure to discover the Triple Cask Series for yourself.
