Speyside Distillery

A small, hand-built, artisan distillery nestled amongst the foothills of the beautiful Cairngorm Mountains, still hand distilling in time-honoured traditions and widely acknowledged to be amongst the prettiest of all Scotland’s distilleries.

Originally a barley mill and croft dating back to the 1700s, it closed in 1965 and over the next 25 years it was slowly and lovingly converted into a single malt distillery and started producing spirit in December 1990.

The distillery draws its water from the Spey River tributary -The River Tromie – whose waters are diverted into the old mill lade, which originally powered the waterwheel for the old mill.

The small boutique distillery is nurtured by a passionate, experienced team of highly skilled craftsmen dedicated to crafting the highest quality spirit in each single drop.

The whisky lovingly created is a light, delicate and characterful single malt Scotch whisky. Highly regarded as being amongst the smoothest and most approachable of all the malts in the Speyside region, SPEY from Speyside Distillery is a multi-facetted dram which offers the
malt drinker a range of ages and styles to suit different times of the day, or indeed, seasons of the year. Each release has had an additional period of maturation in specially selected casks to add complexity and texture to the whisky.
