Ghlen Livid is a spirit made from the freeze distilled Vul Nut, a reannual plant. Reannuals travel back in time, so Ghlen Livid can give its drinkers a vision of the future, which is, from the nut's point of view, the past. It has a distinctive green colour and is brewed in the Rehigreed province of the Agatean Empire. It is first described in The Colour of Magic.

Annotation[]

"Ghlen Livid" is an obvious play on the whiskey "Glenlivet" and "vul-nut" on "Walnut". The 18 year old YO single malt Glenlivet has been described as tasting of " ... of nutmeg, allspice and a bit of cinnamon, followed by hints of vanilla and then walnut."
