The Glenlivet is unveiling its latest collection of limited-release Single Cask Edition whiskies in travel retail locations worldwide.
A stunning selection for whisky connoisseurs seeking a luxurious gift for themselves or others, the Single Cask Edition is the ultimate expression from The Glenlivet’s master whisky makers. This latest collection in travel retail comprises of 15 exceptional casks from a fantastic aged inventory of between 16 and 27 years old, honouring and celebrating the consistency, dedication and commitment the masters put into every step of the whisky making process.
These limited-edition Single Cask malt whiskies will be available in travel retail across 11 locations, including Taiwan, UK, Germany, USA, Malaysia, China, Dubai, Hong Kong, Australia and Nordics.
The crafting of these incredible liquids begins with only the finest locally sourced ingredients to enhance their taste and flavour. Malted barley is selected from within a 15-mile radius, with each batch meticulously nosed and tested to ensure it reaches The Glenlivet’s exacting standards. Natural spring water from Josie’s Well, positioned on the hill behind the distillery, is frequently tested to ensure when combined with the grist it produces the maximum amount of sugar and starch possible.
The liquid is further enhanced by the distillery’s unique copper pots and the time-honoured maturation processes followed in the highest quality oak casks. Each stage of the process is closely monitored and guided by the masters’ refined senses and exceptional talent for high quality whisky creation. Every year, after several weeks of intensive and detailed procedures, only a handful of casks are selected by the expert team to be crowned as one of the Single Cask Editions.
As a result, The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition is the ultimate reference for Single Cask malts, the culmination of years of experience and expertise in crafting the very best liquid possible. Rare in quantity and each with its own unique flavour which can never be replicated, each bottling is at cask strength and without chill-filtration, enabling it to retain the same purity it had while maturing in the cask.
No two casks of The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition are ever the same and with a product as rare as this, consumers will need to move fast to try the liquid for themselves in global travel retail retailers. In some cases, as few as only 200 bottles can be yielded from each cask. To enhance the consumer experience further, each bottle is individually numbered, making them an instant classic for collectors. The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition is an expression of pure passion and pleasure.
The Glenlivet Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, comments: “Demand for rare, prestigious and collectable Single Malts is increasing every year, that’s why The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition was created to offer consumers a rare and distinctive tasting experience. We’re committed to bringing these rare and precious whiskies to market, providing a Single Malt unlike any other which will never be available again.
