Glayva Scotch Liqueur 500ml
Glayva is created from an exotic fusion of the finest aged Scotch malt whiskies, a carefully selected range of spices, Mediterranean tangerines, cinnamon and honey resulting in a very distinctive and pleasant taste. Surprisingly smooth and sweet, with a hint of cinnamon and spices, Glayva is an experience to be enjoyed.
The Glayva story begins in the docks of Leith in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1947. Ronald Morrison, a local wine and whisky merchant, wanted to create a liqueur that would warm and comfort his loyal customers, particularly during the cold Scottish winters. Based at a busy port in Leith, Morrison had access to exotic ingredients from far off lands, such as tangerines, honey and spices, which, when mixed with the Scotch malt whisky, created a surprisingly distinctive and pleasant flavour.
The name Glayva was taken from the reaction of the warehouseman, Hector, who was the first to taste the liqueur after Morrison. “Gle Mhath”, he proclaimed, translated from Gaelic as “Very Good”. Since then, the recipe has never changed, and many since Hector have agreed.
Glayva Scotch Liqueur 500ml has been awarded fourteen times at the International Wine and Spirit Competition, making it literally the best liqueur in the world. – Distillery Notes
