When you think of Scotch Whisky and fashion together, your thoughts probably don’t go much further than the tarytan of a kilt but The Glenlivet, with the release of their 14 year old, want to change all that.

With The Glenlivet 14 Year Old, the brand is disrupting the category by introducing the first single malt Scotch whisky to be selectively finished in ex-Cognac casks and what better way to show that off than to partner with one of fashions biggest disrupters, Prabal Gurung.

In the same way that a focus on quality and innovation has placed Gurung at the forefront of American Fashion, the new The Glenlivet 14 Year Old is targeting “a new generation of whisky drinkers through bold and unconventional flavor combinations and finishing techniques.”

The collaboration with Gurung will be marked by an exclusive Prabal Gurung x The Glenlivet flask & flask bag. Additionally, the brand has also partnering with NYFW: The Shows, to bring its bold expression of the spirit to New York City and beyond with exclusive events, pop-ups.

“The launch of The Glenlivet 14 Year Old, with our NYFW: The Shows sponsorship and collaboration with Prabal Gurung, is the latest proof point of how our brand continues to open up the whisky category,” said Shefali Murdia, Director, Brand Engagement, The Glenlivet. “By bringing a new taste palate and working with unique partners, The Glenlivet 14 Year Old is inviting consumers to rethink the old world of Scotch whisky.”
