Event Details

We here at the Vaults are delighted to welcome Kirsty to host The Glenlivet this month for our research night.

Kirsty is brand ambassador for The Glenlivet UK based in London.

“I grew up in Speyside, it is very much still home to me! I began my whisky journey as a tour guide at Strathisla Distillery in Keith, then continued another season tour guiding at The Glenlivet. After that joining the Chivas Brothers brand ambassador graduate programme based in London.”

“In the early 19th Century, Glenlivet was the word for the best in whisky. Universally demanded by the aristocracy and the King, Glenlivet was the guarantee of a quality borne out of an unflinching conviction to produce the best there was. In 1824 George Smith was granted the first legal license to distill in Glenlivet. From this date on, only this Scotch has had the right to call itself The Glenlivet. Today, still considered the definitive Speyside malt produced in the Livet Valley, The Glenlivet exhibits the characteristic delicacy and softness of the region. It is acclaimed for its balance and perfect finish and is the benchmark against which all other malts are measured.

The Glenlivet set the standard in quality and taste that went on to define the Speyside style of whisky. There were many imitators, but no equals. That’s why a landmark case in 1884 ruled in favor of our single malt being the only one that could call itself The Glenlivet. To this day, The Glenlivet remains the benchmark that all other Speyside single malts are measured against. We will always take great pride in setting that standard.”

As always you will also enjoy two Society whiskies and a supper during the evening.
