Glenlivet released its now-famous 1824 Founder’s Reserve Single Malt Scotch. The offering complemented its standard 12 year old version and was branded to honour founder George Smith. The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve was created from the time-honoured distillation methods that were used. Made with water from the same crystal-clear mountain streams, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is as smooth and fruity as the whisky that first ran from the original copper potstills. These unique, lantern-shaped copper stills, designed by the man himself, are not the only essential tools in the brand's distilling legacy. The traditional oak casks that mature the whisky give each expression its distinct characteristics.Tasting presents sweet fruit notes of zesty oranges and pears with a hint of candy, toffee and apples. Pale gold in colour, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve features a delicate aroma of citrus fruit and notably sweet orange.
