Signature Malt

The signature malt of the Glenlivet whisky distillery has to be the Glenlivet 18 year old whisky that highlights everything that is good about whiskies produced in the Speyside region of Scotland. It is a whisky that has rich taste of both apples and berry fruits with a clean and fresh aftertaste that really hits the right spots on the palate.

The Distillery

The Glenlivet whisky distillery is situated in Ballindalloch, Banffshire and, as such, comes under the Speyside region. It is a distillery that, under their latest owners, want to become one of the top whisky names in the world, if not the top brand. With that in mind, the Glenlivet are continually striving to grow its core brands. On the other hand, they don’t want to lose sight of their prestigious history. They want to satisfy the thirst (pardon the pun) of the whisky enthusiasts. It all adds up to the Glenlivet distillery being one that is both commercial and almost esoteric.

The Glenliver whisky distillery is a great place to visit and boasts one of the best visitor centres of all whisky distilleries in Scotland. Not only does it have an informal shop, cafe and an interesting interactive exhibition, it also has a seating area that is warmed from a traditional fireside. What can be better than having a glass of whisky beside a stunningly lit fireside! From the end of March until the end of October tours are held at the Glenlivet whisky distillery from Monday to Saturday. The most amazing thing though is that the tours are free.

If you are ever in a whisky shop any where in the world and you see a bottle of Nadurra 16 year old you should consider purchasing it. It truly is one of the best whiskies ever. It is a Glenliver speciality and tastes of lashings of malt, spices and chocolate.
