glenlivet single caskTo commemorate The Glenlivet’s historical connection to the Pullman Company during the height of railroad travel in the U.S., The Glenlivet Single Cask Edition Pullman Train Collection includes three special-edition Single Cask whiskies, marking the first time the brand has released a single cask in the U.S. according to a news release on May 18. The name of each bottle is inspired by the Pullman connection: Pullman Club Car, Pullman Twentieth Century Limited, and Pullman Water Level Route. The Glenlivet was “one of the only” Scotch whiskies available in the dining cars offered. The brand’s historical ties to the Pullman Company, a pioneer of first-class railroad travel, are “due in large part to the business savvy Captain Bill Smith Grant, Founder George Smith’s last distilling descendant.” Grant persuaded the Pullman Company to offer 2-ounce miniatures of The Glenlivet, helping to spread the whisky’s brand name across the U.S.
