Glenlivet Guardians’ Single Cask Edition

There’s whisky, and then there’s whisky. If you want people to know you’re deadly serious about your single malt, then the Glenlivet Guardians' Single Cask Edition is for you.

As the name suggests, the limited edition brew is exclusively available to The Glenlivet Guardians, an online membership program that serves discerning drinkers but is open to all.

This particular vintage was selected by five international Guardians at a private tasting on 18 December 2011. The cask they chose, originally a sherry butt, was filled on 18 December 1992, making the Single Cask Edition an 18-year-old vintage. What’s more, anyone purchasing a bottle will have their names engraved on the cask, which is to be preserved by the Glenlivet distillery for time immemorial.

Smooth.

The Glenlivet Guardians' Single Cask Edition is priced at £150 for 70cl and is available for a limited time. To receive complimentary membership, enroll online at www.theglenlivet.com/guardians
