The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve

Celebrate Burns Night with the original single malt that started it all

By LLM Reporters on 19th January 2016

What better way to honour Scotland’s most famous poet, Robert Burns, than by raising a dram of Founder’s Reserve, the latest expression from The Glenlivet – the original single malt Scotch whisky.

The Glenlivet has created an expression that honours the original vision of its founder George Smith, a pioneer of Scotch whisky just as Burns was a pioneer of the much-lauded Romantic Movement.

The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve pays tribute to the uniquely smooth and fruity taste Smith first envisioned in 1824, making it the perfect dram for Burns’ Night.

Distilled using the same time-honoured techniques introduced by George Smith himself, The Glenlivet Founder’s Reserve is drawn predominantly from a range of traditional aged oak casks. The fruity profile, for which The Glenlivet range is renowned, is complemented by selective use of first-fill American oak casks, which impart a delicious, contemporary twist of creaminess.

For those wishing to put on the perfect Burns’ Night celebration on 25th January, The Glenlivet has created its own definitive guide providing information on everything from the traditional meal to the entertainment. You can read this by clicking here.
