Now marketed as Spey from Speyside Distillery, the Whisky produced here is classically Speyside. Refined, delicate, and sweet malt is complemented by a soft, light texture and heightened by time spent in Sherry casks.

Speyside Distillery is located in Speyside, a fact which should surprise no one. Thought of as one of Scotland's most attractive distilleries the Speyside, it is tucked into woods near the hamlet of Drumguish.
Speyside is a young distillery. Founded in 1962 by George Christie, the facility was built by hand over the course of more than twenty years, finally completed in 1987.
Whisky production didn't begin until 1990. Speyside released its first single malt, Drumguish, in 1993. The company was sold to private investors in 2000, and has been relabeled "Spey," for sales as of 2012. It was never meant to be a high-volume facility. Its wash still has a capacity of 11,000 liters, and its spirit, 7,000.
It runs one of the smallest production teams in the industry at just four people. Lightly peatedChariot barley is used in its making, and the spirit is aged in both American oak ex-Bourbon and Sherry casks.
