The Glenlivet Winchester Collection Vintage 1967 Scotch

Mar 13, 2019

Category: Vices

Way back in 1967, The Glenlivet’s former master distiller, Robert Arthur, crafted an especially exceptional and rare single malt scotch whisky. After decades of aging, the brand has finally tapped into that spirit and bottled it, creating the 3rd edition in their legendary Winchester Collection.

Another entry in the series named for the brand’s current master distiller, Alan Winchester, the 150-bottle Vintage 1967 was aged in American oak barrels before being “non-chill-filtered” and bottled at a cask strength of 48% ABV. It’s described as being earthy and fruity, with a bit of smoke on the nose and a smooth orange-chocolate palate. The brilliant spirit is also bottled in glass — inspired by Cairngorms National Park where the distillery is located — created by award-winning designer Bethan Gray and hand-blown by master glassblower Brodie Nairn. And said bottles are housed in a birds-eye maple case with curved solid copper overlays inlaid with mother-of-pearl (a nod to the indigenous mussels of the Spey River). Priced at $25,000 a bottle, this is a rarified spirit, indeed.

Purchase: $25,000
