Set to quickly become a coveted collectors’ item, each Single Cask Edition – a cask strength, non-chill filtered Scotch whisky – is hand selected from an individual cask by The Glenlivet’s expert team of craftsmen. Each bottle is then individually numbered and presented in a handcrafted wooden box – a package designed to reflect the care and craftsmanship that goes into every drop of whisky within.

“With these exclusive Single Cask Editions, Single Malt enthusiasts can own an exclusive piece of The Glenlivet’s history,” said Alan Winchester, Master Distiller, The Glenlivet. “Each bottle is the result of a unique combination of liquid, cask and age and can never be replicated again. Embracing the cask’s original character and flavor, it offers one of the purest Single Malt experiences available.”
