Each event is hosted by Brand Ambassadors who have attained the rank of Guardian. In Malaysia, professional sommelier and The Glenlivet Guardian Lionel Lau will play host for the sessions.
“Malaysia is one of the largest consumers of whiskies in the world and we are seeing the growth of a more discerning group of aficionados which has in turn lead to an increased interest in Single Malt whiskies. Having The Glenlivet Guardians’ Chapter in Malaysia is recognition of the growing sophistication of the local palette for single malt whiskies of discerning quality.” said Terence Ong, Managing Director, Pernod Ricard Malaysia.
During the sessions, select members of connoisseurs and supporters from the local single malt community of The Glenlivet, will choose between three possible expressions, Classic smoothness and enduring excellence… A passion for Exotic spice and enigmatic richness…Or a Revival of past sweet styles, reinterpreted with a contemporary twist.
Each of the three exceptional single malts has been hand-crafted by The Glenlivet’s Master Distiller, Alan Winchester who comments: ‘I’m delighted to be inviting Guardians to create a piece of history and add to The Glenlivet legacy. Drawing on their expertise, passion and enthusiasm I hope they will enjoy collaborating with us to create The Guardians’ Chapter.”
