Opening of The Glenlivet Distillery Expansion (Update) – Scotch Whisky News



It has been announced that Their Royal Highnesses The Prince of Wales and The Duchess of Cornwall (or The Duke and Duchess of Rothesay as they are known in Scotland) will open a new expansion to The Glenlivet Distillery on Friday 4th June 2010.

Completed earlier this year, the new facility will deliver a 75% increase in production capacity to satisfy future global demand for The Glenlivet single malt Scotch whisky.

Great care has been taken to ensure that we carry on tradition in the new distillery, keeping the wash backs made of Oregon Pine and the six new stills are an exact replica of the old. This ensures that we continue to produce whisky of the same exceptional quality, refinement and delicacy of flavour for which The Glenlivet is renowned.




To show you around the new-look distillery, we’ve created a new distillery section on our website, which includes a timeline devoted to the history of The Glenlivet from its foundation to the present. For the most up to date distillery news why not follow us on Twitter.  
 A time-capsule will be buried in which we’ll store the thoughts and mementos of those who are directly involved with the production of The Glenlivet such as our Master Distiller, and brand ambassadors, as well as the local community.

We would like to welcome your messages for The Glenlivet Time Capsule, so if you have a story or any personal observations you’d like to contribute click on Time Capsule Submission ( A selection of them will go into the time capsule – meaning your reminiscences could be stored for generations to come.

 Kindest regards, 
 The Glenlivet
