Hugely popular Scottish liqueur made with whisky, honey, spices, almonds and tangerines. The name is the phonetic pronunciation of the Gaelic "Gle mhath" meaning 'very good'. Rather brilliantly, Glayva is now trademarked as the “best liqueur in the world” after winning the IWSC trophy a record breaking five times.
I'm just revisiting Glayva after many years. It's even better than I remember!

We meet in Scotland. It was a summer's evening. It was love at first sip. I even got my husband to drink it and he is not a big drinker. This is one we enjoy over crushed ice in very small aperitif glasses.

Tried it the 1st time @ Stirling Castle in 2009 & really loved it. My aunt just came for a visit & brought a bottle. Love it!

A great whiskey, a hint of the highlands, It has become my favorite. Should be enjoyed in Edinburgh crystal glasses. However, one must leave the states to find it. Good excuse for a trip to Canada from Buffalo, NY.

My drink of choice ,I first tasted it 20 years ago as an after dinner liquer and now drink it as my main whisky? of choice. It may be marketed as a liquer but over 3 cubes of ice it is a great whisky drink at all times.

I received the two mini bottles as a Christmas gift and now we can not find it in local stores. The name speaks for itself. VSW, Glendale, CO

Apologies, Ian - your Gaelic is better than ours :)

The description would help if it were accurately spelt! Glayva is actually based on the gaelic for very good "Gle mhath" not glembath :)
