The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter

With a history spanning back as far as 1824, The Glenlivet is one of the most historic labels in the world of whisky. Blended for years at the hands of talented distillers, the company is now inviting those who enjoy a dram or two to cast their vote on their next limited edition single malt as a Guardian of The Glenlivet.

Last week Ape to Gentleman had the good fortune of sampling the blends that are currently inspiring discussion and debate amongst connoisseurs at the tasting tour, taking place until December.

Hand-crafted by The Glenlivet’s Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, each of the three expressions displays unique characteristics that draw on the past chapters of the whisky’s history.

  • The Classic goes back to the start, omitting modern production techniques to create a smooth blend with the inviting aroma of Clementine oranges and a soft tangy aftertaste.
  • The Revival increases in sweetness and is matured in American Oak ex-Bourbon barrels to instil aromatic notes of pear and vanilla with an appetising finish in the mouth.
  • The Exotic draws on global travel for its inspiration, evident in the warm spiced flavours and rich, indulgent finish.

By signing up at The Glenlivet website you can become part of the Guardians’ Chapter and cast your vote over which blend will launch in March next year. Guardians of The Glenlivet will receive notifications on special tasting events to attend and have access to inspiring editorial content produced exclusively for The Glenlivet website.

With only one blend capable of winning, this chapter of The Glenlivet’s history is in your hands!
