The Glenlivet is celebrating its past and looking toward the future this year to mark its 200th anniversary. Kicking off the celebrations is the launch of The Glenlivet 200 Year Anniversary Limited Edition 12 Years Old.


The limited-edition bottling is matured in 100 per cent first fill American oak casks. Tasting notes as supplied by the brand are of ripe, juicy pear, coconut shavings and creamy vanilla, complemented by aromas of fresh tangerines, pineapple slices and indulgent crème caramel.


Artwork for the 12 Years Old was selected through a crowdsourcing campaign to source art that captures The Glenlivet ethos of ‘forever moving forwards’, and the winning design pictured above was created by Studio Berdi of Colombia.


Jayne Murphy, Chivas Brothers marketing director, Malts comments: “This year is an important landmark anniversary for The Glenlivet as we look back to look forward towards the next 200 years. Since our founder George Smith introduced Speyside single malt whisky to the world in 1824, we’ve been committed to challenging conventions and will continue to craft the future of single malt whisky while setting new and uncharted standards of excellence. We extend a heartfelt invitation to everyone to join us in raising a dram with our celebratory limited-edition 12-Year-Old and we look forward to the celebrations to come throughout the year. Here’s to the next 200 years!”


The Glenlivet 200 Year Anniversary Limited Edition 12 Years Old is available now at The Whisky Exchange for £51.95. Visit to discover more about the anniversary celebrations.
