Speyside Distillery

Speyside Distillery


Speyside Distillery, home of the Award Winning SPEY and Beinn Dubh Single Malts and hand crafted Byron's Gin is situated in one of the most beautiful areas of Scotland. Nestled on the tranquil banks of the Tromie River and it 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 it was slowly and lovingly converted into a single malt distillery which started producing spirit December 1990. The old mill and water wheel were retained and are still in working order.

The distillery takes it's name from the original Speyside Distillery in Kingussie which started in 1895 and only produced until 1905 before being demolished in 1911.

The distillery is closer to the source of the River Spey than any other distillery in Scotland, providing access to the area's richest, purest water. The rivers of Speyside are renowned for their part in producing great whisky and their banks are home to many fine distilleries.

The distillery draws it's water from the old mill lade which originally ran the waterwheel that powered the old mill which gives the site it's name' the same water source is used for process and cooling in the distillery.
