Let’s start with the backstory of The Glenlivet. Back in the day, the founder, George Smith, was a total maverick. He honed his whisky-making skills in a secret spot called a ‘Bothy’. This cosy hideout in the remote Livet Valley was where George brewed his world-renowned whisky away from prying eyes and pesky authorities.

At the pop-up, you’ll step into The Glenlivet Bothy, a stunning recreation of George Smith’s secret lair. As you venture through this immersive journey, you’ll uncover the fascinating history of The Glenlivet and learn all about the whisky-making process. From the initial distillation to the final product known as ‘uisge beatha’, which means water of life, you’ll get the lowdown on what makes this Scotch so special.

The tasting session is another highlight of this event. You’ll have the chance to sample a whole range of delicious whiskies from The Glenlivet. Each sip is guaranteed to transport you to a world of complexity and nuance.

Speaking of The Glenlivet 12 Year Old, they’ve just introduced a new limited-edition expression called The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Licensed Dram, which you’ll get a chance to sample at the Bothy Pop-up! 

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Licensed Dram is part of their ‘Original Stories’ series and continues to shake things up, just like the brand always has. 

This particular expression celebrates The Glenlivet’s status as the first officially licensed Scotch whisky distillery. Before they got their licence, George Smith was operating undercover, avoiding the watchful eyes of Customs Officers and soldiers.

But destiny intervened when King George IV himself asked for a dram of this legendary whisky during his visit to Scotland in 1822. That royal endorsement changed everything and set The Glenlivet on a bold new path. George Smith’s whisky was a game-changer, shaping the fruity and floral style that Speyside whiskies are known for.
