Permission for Glenlivet to recreate special still

A leading distillery has been given special permission from HM Revenue and Customs to recreate a still which, 200 years ago, was used to make contraband whisky.

The Glenlivet spirit, a Speyside malt, was renowned throughout Scotland and England. Such was its quality and reputation that during a visit to Scotland in 1822 King George IV requested a dram and is reported to have said he would drink nothing else from then on.
