The remote and isolated Livet valley made it ideal for illicit distillation. This is where our founder George Smith learned his craft. Hidden away from the Customs Officers and soldiers amongst the hills and abundant springs, George had time to distil slowly making a whisky that would soon become world renowned. In August 1822, King George IV arrived in Scotland for a state visit and asked to try a drop of the infamous Glenlivet whisky. An illegal dram it was, but even that didn’t stop the King. By the 1830’s, The Glenlivet distillery was producing more than 200 gallons a week. When Andrew Usher & Sons of Edinburgh joined as sales agents, word of the Glenlivet began to spread far and wide.
