Know-how

The Glenlivet owes its unique taste to a number of specific factors relating to its production and location. The distillery is located in the Cairngorms National Park at over 270m above sea level. According to weather records, it is one of the coldest places in Britain characterised by strong winds and heavy snowfalls in winter. 
The water drawn from Josie’s Well, a source of hard mineral water, enables complex aromas to develop during the distillation process. The lantern-shaped stills give the spirit its outstanding balance and strong character. Lastly, a careful ageing process, using hand-selected oak casks, gives The Glenlivet its full flavour.
