The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still

Inspired by our origins and how our liquid was first crafted in the early 1800s, The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still is a limited edition whisky that has not been chill filtered for an authentic taste.
In 1824, before our 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. Bottled at 48% abv, this limited-edition malt has not been chill filtered, giving you an authentic taste of our history.
