This is where Scottish Malt whisky industry started in Speyside and was the first licensed distillery in the parish of Glenlivet. The water that is used in The Glenlivet Malts is from the rich spring water of Josie's Well. It is still currently producing all 'The Glenlivet range' of single malts including 12, 15 and 18 Year Olds just to name a few. This brand is also very famous world wide and one of the top whiskies I would say.
