Many distilleries would love the title of oldest distillery in Scotland. Disputes around this aside, Glenlivet was the first distillery to take out a license in 1824 and has enjoyed huge success ever since. So popular was its whisky that other distilleries attempted to share it's dominance by adding 'of Glenlivet' to their labels. Glenlivet soon took legal action and its Single Malt is now named 'The Glenlivet' to ensure there is only one. Still to this day it is one of the highest selling Single Malt whiskies in the world. Glenlivet currently has seven sets of stills making 10.5 million litres of alcohol a year, but with plans well under way for a large expansion.
Glenlivet is open to visitors.
