Glenlivet Founders Reserve

Caught the attention of wine enthusiasts in 2014, Glenlivet Founders Reserve was produced in quintessential distilleries nestling in the Speyside region of Scotland. This prized possession of Scottish culture was produced by George Smith, a trailblazer founder of single malt whiskies during the 90’s. 

Whether you are a novice drinker or a frequent indulger, Glenlivet Founders Reserve will win you over and over again with its immaculate flavor profile of pear and apple, with a floral undertone and subtle hints of citrus.
