Pernod Ricard has lined up a raft of releases as part of The Glenlivet's Single Cask Editions range.

The Glenlivet Guardians Single Cask Edition (55.7% abv) is an 18-year-old whisky that was selected by members of The Glenlivet online community at an event in London last year. Aged in a second-fill Sherry butt, a total of 631 bottles will be available exclusively to The Guardians of the Glenlivet.

Further Single Cask Editions are being released into selected markets around the world including 21-year-old The Glenlivet Inveravon (54.6% abv, 204 bottles), exclusively available in Taiwan, and 15-year-old The Glenlivet Kilimanjaro (58.2% abv, 232 bottles) and 16-year-old The Glenlivet Legacy (52.8% abv, 198 bottles), both of which are exclusive to Germany.

Still available are The Glenlivet Helios Single Cask Edition (50.7% abv, limited to 307 bottles), a 20-year-old, single malt aged in a second-fill hogshead cask, and The Glenlivet Josie Single Cask Edition (57.5% abv, 464 bottles), named after the well that provides water to the distillery. Both are available in specialist outlets globally.

Each variant is non chill-filtered and bottled at cask strength before being packaged in the same-shaped bottle that houses higher-end offerings in The Glenlivet range.

Introduced in 2005, alphabetised expressions of The Glenlivet Single Cask Editions range to date include The Glenlivet Atlantic, Blairfindy, Cairn Daimh, Drumin, Eclipse and Faemussach.
