Celebrate Burns’ Night 25th January by raising a wee dram of Founder’s Reserve, The Glenlivet; the original single malt Scotch whisky – currently the No. 2 single malt whisky in the world and the No.1 single malt in the US – the world’s largest malt whisky market. The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve pays homage to its founder George Smith, a pioneer of sorts who sought to set up a distillery as a means of capturing the character of the wild, isolated hills and ferocious climate of Scotland’s Glenlivet valley. His whisky was in demand by King George IV and enjoyed by aristocracy both north and south of the border, who’d heard of an illicit dram so smooth they just had to taste it for themselves.
The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve version has been distilled using the same time-honoured techniques introduced by George Smith himself, and is drawn predominantly from a range of traditional aged oak casks.
Drinking whiskey steeped in so much history is a wholly appropriate way of marking Burns’ Night, if, however you are not a fan of offal – pairing with haggis is optional!
