The perfect accompaniment to Parmigiano-Reggiano, our 12 Years Old binds the dryness of the cheese, which in return provides a platform for the malt’s sweet fruitiness and enhances its clean barley notes.

Weather Beaten But Naturally Beautiful
Aged for a decade in first-fill bourbon casks, with only our No. 1 Vaults' wall to protect it from the crashing waves beyond, Bowmore Tempest encapsulates all the rugged, stormy sea qualities associated with our weather-beaten distillery. As complex as they come, this golden-coloured treasure still retains Bowmore's differentiating quality - perfect balance. Bowmore Tempest is released in small batches.
So far we have released three batches of the Tempest Batch numbers 1, 2 and 3.
Matured in an inspired combination of both bourbon and sherry casks, it's the final three years spent in Oloroso sherry casks that gives Bowmore 15 Years Old 'Darkest', one of the most beautifully balanced Bowmores, the rich, deep colour reflected in its name, and its warming finish.
Exclusively matured in first and second fill ex bourbon casks, then blissfully married together, Small Batch exhibits the best qualities of both. First-fill bourbon offers delicious vanilla sweetness, subtle spices and bourbon oak smoke to complement Bowmore's gentle peaty smokiness, while the second-fill cask enhances Bowmore's fresh fruity complexity and showcases its trademark honey and creamy malt character.
Crafted from a selection of the finest North American bourbon barrels, which help to bring out its trademark characteristics, Bowmore Legend is a fitting tribute to the very first Islay malt. So much so that it has become something of a legend in its own right, among single malt whisky lovers everywhere.

Complex yet perfectly balanced, our 12 Years Old reflects the raw essence of Bowmore - thrashing waves, windswept landscapes and generations of tradition. Bowmore 12 Years Old has received much critical acclaim; the late, great whisky writer Michael Jackson proclaimed it "remarkably long and complex". We like to think of it as vanilla ice cream at a beach bonfire.

This whisky has been called a lot of things in its time: smooth, fruity, complex, sophisticated, entertaining, classic. The Original Malt Whisky Almanac says: “A first-class malt. One of the most popular malts in the world – deservedly so.” Representing The Glenlivet’s signature style, this classic malt is first matured in traditional oak, before spending time in American oak casks which impart notes of vanilla and gives the whisky it’s distinctive smoothness. The mineral-rich water that comes from Josie’s Well helps form the flavours during mashing and fermentation, whilst the specific height and width of the copper stills add a delicate yet complex character. Keep a bottle on hand for every occasion.
The 15 Year Old gets its distinctive rich and exotic character from a process of selective maturation in which a proportion of the spirit is matured in French oak casks. In fact, we at The Glenlivet were one of the first to use French oak for making whisky, a technique that has since been imitated the world over. The Limousin oak we use is cut in France’s Dordogne region, where it’s often used to mature cognacs. Its low density allows whisky to sink deep into the wood, and we carefully control how long the whisky matures in the casks so as not to overpower the desired result: a unique, pleasing spiciness.
Over the course of 18 years our Master Distiller, Alan Winchester, takes this expression through a combination of cask types, including both first and second-fill American oak (for tropical fruitiness) and ex-sherry oak (for spicy complexity). The result of this deft navigation of the distilling arts is a gorgeous single malt that is complex, yet elegant and balanced. The 18 Year Old has won more awards than any other expression; every bottle is a true example of the quality and taste of The Glenlivet. Any bottle deserves pride of place in your cabinet… perhaps to be held back for a fitting occasion? It is, after all, crafted to impress.
In 1966, former Master Distiller Robert Arthur distilled a run of particularly outstanding spirit. For five decades, our dedicated Master Distillers continuously monitored this exclusive whisky as it slowly aged at The Glenlivet distillery. Over 50 years, this precious spirit became imbued with increasing depth and complexity, soaking up flavour and a sense of history in equal measure. Now, at the peak of its maturation, Master Distiller Alan Winchester has released just 100 bottles of this rare single malt. Crafted over generations, it is a tribute to George Smith, who created the original single malt that set the standard in taste and quality. Vintage 1966 is the second edition of The Winchester Collection. Released over a number of years, The Winchester Collection of 50-year-old single malts is set to become one of the most sought-after and priceless whisky collections. Vintage 1966 has been matured in an exceptional ex-sherry cask, so it bursts with soft fruit and sweet treacle flavours, and it’s tantalisingly rich and dark in colour. On opening the bottle, the nose exudes heavenly sweet, rich aromas of treacle, moist raisins and homemade apricot jam. Take a sip, and the palate bursts with an abundance of soft fruits, treacle and juicy orange. Layered like a symphony, there’s also a hint of cinnamon and liquorice. The finish is exceptionally luscious and long lasting. From the first sip to the final, lingering flavours, it’s pure luxury that will make your heart sing.
