  • (1888PressRelease) December 07, 2011 - Adding yet another feather to its cap, Delhi Duty Free, India's largest duty free shops at Terminal 3, IGI Airport, has exclusively launched the Glenlivet Master Distiller's Reserve. Being launched exclusively in the travel retail format in DDF, the rare 'cellar collection bottle' is created by Mr. Alan Winchester who is the third Master Distiller at the Glenlivet Distiller and succeeds the now retired Mr. Jim Cryle.

    Inspired by Glenlivet founder, George Smith's original vision, and the continuation of the definitive and classic style of the Glenlivet; this expression has added complexity and richness from maturation in three different woods - Traditional Oak, which allows the intrinsic character of the Glenlivet to shine through with ripe fruit pear and gentle summer floral notes; American Oak that add creamy notes of coconut, soft fudge and vanilla; and Ex-Sherry Oak that contributes with dried fruit, orange marmalade and spice aromas with sweetness of dark chocolate to the taste.

    Mr. Alan Winchester, Master Distiller, Glenlivet said, "As a guardian of Glenlivet it is my responsibility to see the legacy lives on for future generations and it is an honour and a privilege to have my signature on a bottle of The Glenlivet."

    Mr. Arun Barathi, COO, Delhi Duty Free said, "It is a pleasure to be hosting the exclusive launch of the Glenlivet at our Duty Free shops. Delhi Duty Free has tactfully carved a niche for itself and is now recognized by world-class brands like the Glenlivet."
