Gordon & MacPhail are back again with a priceless offer for connoisseurs. After the Mortlach 70 Years Old whiskey was unveiled last year, the family-owned specialist is ready to present the equally precious Glenlivet 70 Years Old. The unveiling ceremony will take place in Edinburgh Castle.
The seven-decades-old Glenlivet was distilled on February 3, 1940 and it was aged in a first fill sherry butt. This is one of the oldest whiskeys one could ever enjoy, but it’s also very exclusive, as only 100 bottles have been released. For £13,000 ($21,000) you will get a beautiful 70cl tear-shaped hand-blown crystal decanter. The bottles boast British Hallmarked silver stoppers and sterling silver bases. They come in hand-crafted Scottish-elm boxes made in Scotland. Smaller, cheaper versions are also available: the 20cl bottles are priced at £3,200 ($5,155)each.
To complete your exquisite acquisition, the company offers you the Private Collection: Glenlivet Decades. The set features five bottles with whiskeys from every decade from the 1950s to the 1990s. If you add to this the precious Glenlivet 70 Years Old, you can pride yourself with owning a collection like no other, which allows you “to get a real sense of how the cask and the maturation process change the character of a whisky”, as David and Michael Urquhart, Managing Directors of Gordon & MacPhail, said.
