Whisky Focus - The Glenlivet Guardians Chapter

The Glenlivet Guardians Chapter

26th September 2013
The Guardians of The Glenlivet are asked to select its next single malt whisky.

The Glenlivet single malt Scotch whisky, is calling on its global community of whisky fans, The Guardians of The Glenlivet, to create a piece of history by inviting them to select its next limited edition release, The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter.

Master Distiller Alan Winchester has created three exciting new single malt whiskies from the Glenlivet distillery’s exceptional cask collection and has classified the three whiskies by their taste:

Classic – 48.7% ABV – non chill filtered
Notes of honey and caramel are able to be tasted due to the Spanish and American oak casks

Exotic – 48.7% ABV – non chill filtered
A darker and deeper flavour is developed from the use of sherry casks

Revival – 48.7% ABV – non chill filtered
The refill bourbon casks deliver hints of vanilla, fresh fruit and crème brûlée

The three whiskies will be taken on a worldwide tour and showcased at tasting events in dozens of countries; Australia, USA, UK, Canada, India, South Africa and Japan to name but a few. Guardians will come together to sample, savour and select the expression they want to become The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter and share their passions with other kindred whisky spirits.

A new, content-rich online space has also been created exclusively for Guardians, where they can cast their vote for which expression becomes Guardians’ Chapter. The site explores the Classic, Exotic and Revival themes in other areas of cultural appreciation aside from whisky, such as art, design, style and technology. In addition to tasting notes with a twist, the hub will include short films, photography and interviews aimed to capture the imagination of new and existing whisky fans.

Following the final tasting event in December, the Guardians’ votes will be counted and the winning whisky will be proclaimed "The Guardians’ Chapter”. A limited run of 2000 9 litre cases will be released globally from February 2014.

Nikki Burgess, Brand Director for The Glenlivet, comments: "Choosing a Scotch whisky is normally a privilege reserved for a very select handful of experts revered for their knowledge, passion and experience. With The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter, we wanted to recognise and reward the knowledge, passion and experience of our Guardians and invite them to write the next chapter in The Glenlivet’s history. We’re excited to see which whisky our Guardians choose and hope it brings members – new and old – closer together."
