200 Years and Counting

The 1823 excise act triggered an explosion in the whisky industry. After more than a century evading the King’s justice, the pioneers of Scottish distilling were then able to gain a license to ply their trade. The required fee of £10, and the more agreeable rate of tax than ever before, was enough to lure scores of whisky makers to the right side of the law. Once paid up, they could secure investment, expand operations and plan for the future. Among the first to sign a license was a farmer named George Smith from Upper Drummin in the Livet valley – the Glen Livet.

The Glenlivet

As a legitimate businessman, Smith became a leader in the emergent industry of Highland distilling. Even in those early days his spirit had a serious reputation among drinkers, who prized its fruity and elegant character. At this time there were many distilleries trading under the name ‘Glenlivet’ – the term having become a byword for illicit whisky from Speyside over the years. But in 1880s the Smith family won a legal battle for their whisky to be recognised as the definite article: ‘The’ Glenlivet. The rest, as they say, is history.
