Glenlivet 1940 Gordon and MacPhail 50 Year Old 'Book of Kells' Decanter

Well-known as the oldest licensed distillery in Scotland, for many years ‘Glenlivet’ was a byword for quality, with many single malts using the Glenlivet suffix in attempt to reap the benefits of associating themselves with the Banffshire distillery. Indeed, owners Pernod Ricard now put a heavy focus on the brand being ‘The Glenlivet’, encouraging their consumers not to accept any imitations. Glenlivet is in a long-running battle with Glenfiddich for the title of best-selling single malt, with both now selling over a million cases a year.  

This is an incredible 1940 vintage from Gordon & MacPhail, bottled after 50 years using the iconic Book of Kells packaging, bearing label art based on the mediaeval, illuminated manuscript for which the series is named.
