EXPLORE THE GLENLIVET ILLICIT STILL


"Hidden away from prying eyes, an illicit single malt was born."

THE STORY OF THE START

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still


In 1824, before The Glenlivet's founder George Smith licensed his distillery, the remote Glenlivet valley was the perfect location for the illicit scotch whisky trade, with distilleries handcrafting in smaller copper stills in bothies well hidden from the law.

It was there in the isolated valley that George Smith would learn his craft. Slowly and carefully distilling what would soon become the world-renowned single malt scotch whisky that established the signature fruity floral Speyside style.
