During the early 19th century, illegal distilleries were commonplace throughout the Speyside region of Scotland. In 1823, however, Alexander Gordon pushed the Excise Act of 1823 through Parliament. The Excise Act allowed illegal distillers throughout Scotland to apply for and obtain licenses to legally distill spirits. In 1824, a businessman named George Smith applied for one of the first licenses in the Speyside region of Scotland and opened the doors to The Glenlivet Distillery. For nearly two centuries, The Glenlivet Distillery has been producing the “single malt whisky that started it all.”
Following distillation, The Glenlivet Archive 21-Year-Old Single Malt Scotch Whisky is matured in a combination of ex-sherry casks and ex-bourbon casks for a minimum of 21 years (a portion of the whisky is matured for up to 40 years).
Rich, luxurious aroma of pine, raisins and sandalwood. Notes of brown sugar, walnuts and honey on the palate, that are well-complemented by notes of dried fruits, Christmas cake and baking spices. The finish is long and sweet, with a hint of chewy leather, ginger and oak.
