Where: Glenlivet, Ballindalloch, Speyside

About: Experience the original at The Glenlivet Distillery. George Smith founded his small distillery at Upper Drumin in 1824 and could hardly have imagined the legacy he would leave behind him. The long journey from those first precarious years to the internationally acclaimed single malt whisky of today is the story of The Glenlivet. Still considered the definitive single malt, it exhibits the characteristic delicacy and softness of the Speyside region. It is acclaimed for its balance and perfect finish: it is the benchmark by which other single malts are measured.

Discover our inspiring legacy with a Classic Tour. This lasts 1 hour 15 minutes and incudes 3 drams, including one drawn from a cask in the warehouse, and a souvenir gift. The tour costs £10.00. Explore the exhibition to find out what made The Glenlivet so special. Connoisseur Tours – The Glenlivet Inspiration and the Legacy Tasting Experience – can be pre-booked and include VIP experiences and tutored tastings of exceptional expressions of The Glenlivet whiskies.
