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.” Glenlivet Single Malt Scotch Whisky is made using barley sourced from Crisp Maltings, Portgordon (Portgordon is a village in Moray, Scotland). After the barley has been malted and mashed, it is fermented in wooden washbacks for approximately two days. The wooden washbacks used by Glenlivet are more difficult and expensive to maintain as compared to the stainless steel washbacks used by most Scottish distilleries, but impart a distinctive, floral quality to the whisky. After the barley has been fermented, it is distilled twice — first through Glenlivet’s wash still, and then again through Glenlivet’s spirits still. Originally designed by George Smith, the copper-pot stills have a unique, lantern-like shape, which encourages contact between the whisky and the copper. The copper strips the whisky of any impurities it may have, and provides for a lighter and more pure flavor profile. Following distillation, The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection Single Malt Scotch Whisky is drawn from casks of American White Oak, which have never before been used to mature Scotch whisky. The technique of using virgin casks has been in favour with distillers at The Glenlivet since the early 1900s, and according to the distillery, the Nàdurra is the purest expression of The Glenlivet. The untouched oak imparts a nose of creamy vanilla and sweet pears to this whisky, and contributes to a palate filled with notes of tropical pineapple and ripe bananas. The finish is medium-bodied and refreshing, making the Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection Single Malt Scotch Whisky perfect to drink straight or in a cocktail. Bottled at cask strength, The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection Single Malt Scotch Whisky is a brand-new expression from a distillery with an incredibly rich tradition.
