Glenlivet Whisky Distillery.
The reputation of the Glenlivet valley and especially the Glenlivet distillery became a powerful word association with whisky.
Merchants in the cities wanted whisky “from Glenlivet” Even though there are only three distilleries in the glen.
A further 18 distilleries were using the Glenlivet in their name or calling their whisky Glenlivet. Even distilleries as far away on the coast north of Inverness.
In 1884 the distillery gained the exclusive designation “The Glenlivet” granted in a test case to distinguish it from the other distilleries. Hence the only distillery allowed to call itself “The Glenlivet”.
Founded in 1824 by George Smith.
Location; Speyside region, Livet district.
Water source Josie’s Well.
