Bottle & Case design
The case that stores this beautifully aged whisky is nothing to scoff at either.
Award-winning British designer Bethan Gray designed the case with her characteristic Dhow pattern encircling the bottle, which was inspired from the River Spey and the layers of mist that drape the surrounding valleys.
The hand-stained birds-eye maple case is made with solid copper overlays that are reminiscent of the distillery’s charred barrels and copper stills. The canister is also inlaid with mother-of-pearl to reflect the freshwater pearl mussel shells indigenous to the River Spey.
For the bottle, Master glassblower Brodie Nairn created an ombre effect on the bottle to reflect the ageing process of whisky; after which, each bottle is engraved and hand-painted.
The entire design of this 50-year-old Speyside Scotch was inspired by the Cairngorms- the area where The Glenlivet distillery is based. This led to the creation of a beautiful and captivating bottle that stores within it a luxurious and sublime tasting Glenlivet.
We have come to the end of another collector's whisky showcase! Although most of us wouldn't bear to spend tens of thousands of dollars on a single bottle of whisky, it will still be great to know about these exclusive releases!
