The Glenlivet Illicit Still

The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still tells the story of how George Smith illegally distilled his whisky in hand-crafted, small copper stills in a hidden bothy located in the remote Glenlivet Valley. He smuggled his whisky across the Scottish Highlands in order to avoid the excisemen and subsequently created the iconic Scotch that’s loved the world over. Smith’s whisky reshaped conventions at the time and is the origin of Speyside’s signature fruity and floral style. Inspired by this distinctive style, this limited edition pays homage to where it all began.

The design for The Glenlivet 12 Year Old Illicit Still is inspired by the oldest bottle in the brand’s archives, and features copper highlights that represent the hand-crafted stills used to illicitly produce the whisky in the 1800s. It is non-chill filtered and has a higher than average alcohol content of 48% ABV, inspired by the traditional methods of the time.

The barrel-proof bourbon coats the palate with sweet and warming flavors rising from the harmonious marriage of dried dark fruit and charred confectionary notes. Those sweet and woody notes give way to rich flavors of honey, chocolate and nougat throughout, followed by a strong and lasting finish.

Wild Turkey Master’s Keep Bottled in Bond

This 17-year-old Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is designated Bottled-In-Bond, a certification that guarantees a strict production process and ensures incomparable flavor and consistency.

Our port finishing process lasts between three to six months, depending on taste.

Bib & Tucker Bourbon

The phrase “bib and tucker” in the 1880’s meant to don your finest attire for celebrations, but when your dad’s attire has been the same for years — despite all of those neckties you gave him — the same is probably true for his bourbon of choice. It’s time to help change his style with Bib & Tucker Bourbon.
