The Glenlivet 70 Years Old: ‘Voluptuous and smooth’.

Family-owned whisky specialist Gordon & MacPhail have unveiled one cask of The Glenlivet 70 Years Old at a ceremony in Edinburgh Castle.

The firm is¬†offering whisky lovers will get the chance to own one of Scotland’s most iconic whiskies for the princely sum of ¬£13,000 a bottle.

The single malt, which has been described as ‘voluptuous’, is being released under Gordon & MacPhail’s Generations Label as a limited edition of only 100 full-sized bottles.

David and Michael Urquhart, joint managing directors of Gordon & MacPhail, said in a statement: “Following on from the phenomenal success last year of Mortlach 70 Years Old, we decided to release this ‘sister’ Generations cask as there is clearly an enormous demand for greatly-aged scotch malt whiskies.

“This cask of The Glenlivet was laid down on 3rd February 1940, on the instruction of our grand-father, John Urquhart.

“Since then, successive generations of the Urquhart family have been waiting for today – the day it would be ready to share with fellow whisky lovers.

They added: “The ‘Glenlivet Decades’ collection revisits this special malt throughout the years, allowing whisky enthusiasts to get a real sense of how the cask and the maturation process change the character of a whisky.”
