No, this is not a blend of whiskies from the Aberlour and Glenlivet distilleries. In the 19th and 20th century, many Speyside distilleries used the Glenlivet suffix: it simply referred to the region. The Glenlivet Distillery trademarked the name early on, but it didn’t change anything. Only at the end of the 20th century did Speyside distilleries start dropping the Glenlivet suffix. Aberlour Glenlivet is a five-year-old pure malt from the Aberlour distillery. ‘Pure malt’, another obsolete term, is what we today call single malt (unless you’re Nikka, but that’s a different story for another time). Aberlour Glenlivet 5 Years Old Pure Malt was bottled in the 1970s for the Italian market.
