Speyside Distilleries

Speyside is home to some of Scotland's most beautiful scenery and lush landscapes, as well as roughly half of the country's distilleries.

It is located in the magical Highlands, east of Inverness, and reaches from the glittering Moray coastline down towards the Cairngorms National Park.

The region takes its name from the River Spey, and most of its distilleries are in the beautiful surrounding glens. The rich supply of pure water and beautiful inland setting help to produce smooth and complex whiskies that provide an elegant contrast to the salty and heavily peated whiskies from other regions.

Speyside whiskies are characterised by sweet and fruity notes, ranging from ripe pears to sultanas. Hints of nuts and malt are common, and some also possess a refined smokiness. In Speyside you're never far from a distillery.

From small-scale producers who handcraft whisky using traditional methods to some of the most famous distilleries in the world, it is the perfect place to learn about the art of whisky creation.
