In 1824, George Smith established his distillery in the remote and wild location of Glenlivet. Here, he found the perfect conditions to craft the definitive single malt whisky. Through this timeless primeval valley run the icy waters of the River Livet. Its name, “smooth flowing one” in Gaelic, reflects the Glenlivet’s beautiful rich and elegant flavours.
This definitive single malt inspired so many other distilleries to adopt the appellation ‘Glenlivet’, that it became known as the “longest glen in Scotland”. In 1884 a legal agreement was reached to distinguish Smith’s original whisky by referring to it exclusively as ‘The Glenlivet’.
