Pernod Ricard Korea presents The Glenlivet 12YO Licensed Dram limited edition, which captures the bold courage and unrelenting passion of George Smith, the founder of The Glenlivet single malt whiskey, in its original quality.
The Glenlivet, a brand that set the standard for single malt whiskey, was born in 1824 out of founder George Smith's desire for perfect smoothness and original quality single malt, becoming the first licensed distillery in the Speyside, Scotland's single malt mecca. Since its original release in 1824, The Glenlivet has set the bar for single malt through endless innovation and has been loved by single malt fans around the world.
The Glenlivet 12YO Licensed Dram inherits and celebrates the passion and spirit of founder George Smith. George Smith defied centuries of local traditions, breaking all known conventions and went against violent opposition from his neighbors when he secured the first whisky making license in the Glenlivet Valley. This unwavering conviction and vision made him a pioneer in single malt whiskey.
Inspired by the oldest available Glenlivet bottle at the time of obtaining the distilling license, the limited edition bottle highlights the original quality of The Glenlivet. The package design, wrapped in a Distilling License granted to George Smith in the 1800’s, honors his brave and innovative spirit for the legal production of single malt whiskey and original quality.
The maturation process also embodies the meaning of this unique offering. In honor and recognition of George Smith’s successful pursuit of obtaining the first whisky license in the Glen, this whisky is aged in a "First Fill Double Oak." Matured in first fill American and European oak casks, the fruity house style of The Glenlivet 12YO creates a unique pineapple note. Soft peaches and strawberry jam are intertwined with warming cinnamon and gingerbread, while honey and vanilla custard are layered perfectly with hazelnut and liquorice, giving a long and slightly sweet finish with lasting spice notes.
The perfect softness and unique flavor of ‘The Glenlivet 12YO Licensed Dram’ can be experienced at the Malt Bar Barrel located in Samseong-dong, Seoul.
Kerrie Kim, Marketing Director of Pernod Ricard Korea, said, "The Glenlivet has been loved by single malt connoisseurs all over the world for its original quality and endless innovation”, and “The Glenlivet 12YO Licensed Dram will provide a good opportunity to experience the originality of The Glenlivet set the standard for single malt whiskey, George Smith's pioneering spirit, and a unique flavor”
