50 Years Of Sophistication: the Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1966
I’m pretty sure we all know whiskey is a gentleman’s drink, and a 50 year-old sip might get anyone more excited than words can probably describe. That’s exactly what we’re dealing with right now, a special Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1966, that will probably get all the attention it deserves, without any money spent on advertising.
Created by George Smith back in 1824, The Glenlivet is the original single malt Scotch whisky, renowned for its smooth and fruity flavor profile, and this 50-year old Scotch is one of the brand’s most exquisite offerings. Retailing for $25,000, aficionados should definitely note that only 100 bottles of this rare whisky will be made and even more interesting, the Master Distiller’s bottle will be auctioned at Christie’s New York on October 21st.
The Glenlivet Winchester Collection series is set to be released over the next few years and is probably one of the rarest scotch whisky collections in the world. Taking its name from the Glenlivet’s current Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, this delightful collection honors the brand’s past and the legacy of generations of craftsmen.
The world has been through a lot in these past 50 years, but the Winchester Collection remained hidden at The Glenlivet Distillery, maturing and waiting for the right time and the suitable person to allow it to breathe and be enjoyed once again. Any takers?
