It’s known as one of the finest single malts ever. The Glenlivet single malt’s collaboration with British collective The New Craftsmen marks the launch of the Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish. And taking inspiration from the Nàdurra’s 19th Century processes, designer-craftsman Sebastian Cox has unveiled a limited-edition Glenlivet Nàdurra Drinks Trolley.
Built using oak staves taken from retired casks and leather oak-tanned, the drinks trolley makes an excellent addition to the Glenlivet Nàdurra Dram Chair. The trolley takes inspiration from the traditional Malt Barrow used in the distillery to turn and transport the malt to Nàdurra. The functional and aesthetic trolley will feature a wood ‘weave’ used as cupboard panels while the Trolley’s ‘barrow’ wheels are made from oak staves from retired casks. The Trolley comes with a hand blown glass vessel to hold ice and water, designed by glass artist Michael Ruh, and features a copper spinner and floating wood shavings. Each trolley will also showcase the three expressions in the Nàdurra range, each in a unique cask finish. The Glenlivet Nàdurra Peated Whisky Cask Finish rests on a 3,000 year-old Peated Oak, The Glenlivet Nàdurra Oloroso in a warm-hued Cherry wood and The Glenlivet Nàdurra First Fill Selection rests on a golden Medullary flecked American White Oak.
A limited number of trolleys will be available ‘made to order’ from The New Craftsmen at a cost of £4,200 ($6,464). However to be eligible to purchase, buyers must register as Guardians of The Glenlivet at www.theglenlivet.com.
Available as part of the trolley, The Glenlivet Nàdurra Dram Tray can also be purchased as a standalone piece. The Dram Tray can hold two glasses and a bottle and will be available to purchase from The New Craftsmen for £120 ($184).
