product Details

Glenlivet 1964 Winchester Collection 50 Year Old

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 an 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. George Smith secured a license to legally distil at Glenlivet in 1824, and it remained family-run until 1978 when Seagram bought a controlling stake in what had by then become The Glenlivet Distilleries Ltd, and counting assets such as Glen Grant, Benriach and Longmorn among its portfolio. When Seagram collapsed in 2001, Pernod-Ricard acquired its sizeable Chivas Brothers Scotch whisky division, with Glenlivet the crown jewel in an empire rivalled only by Diageo.

Named the Winchester Collection after Master Distiller Alan Winchester, this is the first release in the on going release of 50 year old malts. 

Distilled in 1964 and bottled in June 2014, this comes along with a miniature. 

This is presented in a decanter designed by Glasstorm, a Cairngorm Stone stopper created by silversmith Richard Fox. The crafted wooden box was produced by furniture maker John Galvin. 

Limited to 100 bottles.
