Pernod Ricard's next expression from its Glenlivet stable has been chosen by an online vote.

The Glenlivet The Guardians’ Chapter, with an abv of 48.7%, will be launched in March, the company said today (12 December). Voters were given the choice of three styles - Exotic, Classic and Revival - and picked Exotic, with 39% of the vote.

The Guardians' Chapter name refers to The Glenlivet fan club, the Guardians of The Glenlivet, who contributed to the online poll.

“This is an opportunity to savour a unique, limited edition, single malt that’s already been admired and desired by thousands of whisky lovers,” Glenlivet master distiller Alan Winchester said.

The Guardians’ Chapter Exotic single malt is made with a mixture of casks including Hogsheads and American oak barrels with the addition of whisky from Spanish ex-sherry butts.

Pernod said it will be bottled “in limited quantities”.

In first-quarter results, released in October, The Glenlivet posted a 10% sales growth in its core US market.

This article has been updated. The original refered to the new expression as The Glenlivet Exotic instead of The Glenlivet The Guardians’ Chapter.
