A Remarkable Past. A Flavor for the Present
Inspired by our legendary founder George Smith whose vision was to create the smoothest of all whiskies, The Glenlivet's Founder's Reserve embodies a new side of The Glenlivet's classic style. Founder's Reserve is an extremely well balanced whisky, full of sweet, creamy vanilla and caramel apple notes, along with zesty orange and hints of buttery biscuit on the finish.
First Fill American oak casks are instrumental in creating the flavors, because, like a coffee filter, the strength of the cask's effect lessens with each use. These casks were first used to mature American Whiskies like Bourbon, which by law has to be aged in new oak casks, and used only once.
Founder's Reserve is a scotch that elevates the everyday and is something to call your own for happy hour and any hour. Incredibly smooth and versatile it can be enjoyed neat, on the rocks or in a cocktail.
Enjoy in a classic cocktail, reimagined with a contemporary twist.
THE FOUNDER'S RESERVE AULD FASHIONED
3 dashes bitters
3oz Founder's Reserve
1 tsp water
1 sugar cube
Muddle the bitters and water into the sugar cube, using the back of a teaspoon. Almost fill the glass with ice cubes and add the scotch. Garnish with the orange slice & a maraschino cherry.
Sip and Savor the Present
Founder's Reserve's creamy sweetness originates from the use of first-fill American oak casks complemented by traditional oak casks. This sweetness contrasts with the liveliness of zesty fruits, creating an expression that is worthy of its "reserve" status. The aroma has hints of citrus before a creamy, long, and incredibly smooth finish.
