The Glenlivet Distillery Visit
Our 6th Distillery visited and 3rd tour occurred at the famed The Glenlivet Distillery. Claimed as one of the first legal distillers in Speyside and fierce defenders of their reputation. For a long time Speyside whisky was known better as ‘Glenlivet’ to the extent that surrounding distilleries used the name and later after a partially successful legal battle were forced into using their own distillery names preceding ‘-Glenlivet’. No longer on the exact site of the original distillery, however within sight of the original Josie’s well whose water source is claimed to bestow many of The Glenlivets whisky its wonderful properties. Whilst here we sampled the Glenlivet 12, 15 and Nadurra expressions as part of our tour.
