THE GLENLIVET DISTILLERY
The Glenlivet is the first licensed distillery in Scotland. The date on each bottle of The Glenlivet is 1824 which is the year in which The Glenlivet became legal and not when The Glenlivet started distilling. King George IV ordered The Glenlivet in 1822 during his visit to the Edinburgh festival. The Glenlivet 12 year old is the largest selling 12 year old single malt whisky in the world today

The Archive has even more sherry cask finish than the 18 year old The Glenlivet and is higher on my preferance list for this reason.
