The Glenlivet Scotch Whisky Distillery

The Glenlivet Distillery

The Glenlivet Scotch Whisky Distillery was built in 1824 by George Smith and is situated in the Speyside region of Scotland. 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.

The contact details for this distillery are The Glenlivet Distillery, Ballindalloch, Banffshire, AB37 9DB and contact phone number being +44 (0)1542 783220. The Glenlivet visitor centre is an excellent place to visit and the guided tour includes an interactive exhibition showcasting the history of the surrounding area of Glenlivet. You will also be able to taste The Glenlivet award-winning range.

This distillery visitor center was awarded the Best Visitor Attraction at the Whisky Magazing 2007 Icons of Whisky Awards. If you would like to contact the visitor center at The Glenlivet please call them on +44 (0)1340 821720.
