Our tribute to the one who started it all. Founders boasts with all the classic flavours of the Glenlivet, bound together with a creamy, smooth texture. Made with water from the same crystal-clear mountain streams, in the same cold, pure air. As smooth and fruity as the whisky that first ran from the original copper pot stills.
George Smith, the founder of the Glenlivet distillery, in 1824, was the first to produce a whisky of such exceptional quality that it was soon widely acknowledged to be how a malt whisky should taste and rightfully earned the name "The Glenlivet". The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve brings new life to the time-honoured and celebrated style of The Glenlivet. At the heart of The Glenlivet style is its classic fruitiness, the result of the unique, wide, lantern-shaped stills favoured by George Smith. For The Glenlivet Founder's Reserve, this fruitiness, is brilliantly complemented by selective use of American first fill casks, creating a malt of exceptional smoothness, the very quality for which George Smith's The Glenlivet was widely admired and appreciated in his day.
