US: The Glenlivet introduces 1969 vintage
The Glenlivet Cellar Collection 1969, valued at US$750 a bottle, is the latest addition in The Glenlivet tradition of adding a single new vintage once a year.
Andrew Nash, brand director for The Glenlivet at Pernod Ricard USA said: "1969 marked a significant year in countless ways. The year was marked with achievements in music, film, television and science. Neil Armstrong took man's first steps on the moon; the Boeing 747 plane took to the air for its very first test flight; The Beatles performed their last live performance, and the Woodstock Festival made concert history. It is only appropriate that we release a vintage that can stand up to the significant achievements of this memorable year."
The Glenlivet master distiller Jim Cryle added: "In this momentous year, we placed spirit from The Glenlivet Distillery into these casks, and after nearly 40 years of gradual maturation, it is finally ready to see the light of day."
The Glenlivet Cellar Collection 1969 will be released nationally in September with only 800 bottles available in the US.
