Extracted from Speyside Distillery
Speyside Distillery, nestled within the magnificent Cairngorm Mountains is widely acknowledged as being the prettiest of all Scotland’s distilleries.
Originally a barley mill and croft dating back to the 1700’s, it finally closed in 1965.
Over the next 25 years from 1965 it was slowly and lovingly converted into a single malt distillery, which then started producing spirit on Christmas Day 1990.
The distillery draws it’s water from the Spey River tributary …. The River Tromie using the old mill lade, which originally ran the waterwheel that powered the old mill.
