The Glenlivet distillery produces one of the most famous malts in the world and is located near Ballindalloch in Moray, Scotland. Described as ‘The Single Malt that started it all’, it was founded in 1824 and is the oldest legal distillery in the parish of Glenlivet.
Today the Glenlivet brand is the biggest selling single malt whisky in the United States and the second biggest selling single malt brand globally. It’s owned by the French beverages company Pernod Ricard who oversee the distillery’s production of 5,900,000 proof litres per annum. The majority of this – enough for 6 million bottles, is sold as The Glenlivet single malt, with the remainder being used in Pernod Ricard’s blended whisky brands.
The Glenlivet set the standard in quality and taste that went on to define the Speyside style of whisky. There were many imitators, but no equals.
