Speyside Distillery, Kingussie

4.7
The Speyside distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery near the hamlet of Drumguish in the Speyside region of Scotland, close to the village of Kingussie. It produces the Speyside single malt and Drumguish single malt.
The distillery was founded in 1962 by George Christie. It was built by hand by George Christie over the next decades, and was finished in 1987. It took another three years until whisky production started in 1990.
Two pot stills of traditional shape were installed. Because massive production was never one of George's objectives, they are some of the smallest in Scotland. The Glenspey mash tun was the very last fitted by Newmill engineering before they closed down. Though small the distillery can produce 500,000 litres of alcohol per annum. The distillery is the most southern on Speyside and takes its water directly from the River Tromie.
The Speyside distillery offers many varieties of Scotch whisky in addition to many other distilled spirits. Their ten-year single malt Scotch whisky is no longer produced, having been superseded by twelve and fifteen-year-old malts, whilst an unaged malt called Drumguish is also available. It also produces malts under the names Glentromie and Củ Dhub. The company additionally produces various blended whiskies, including Glen Hood, Best Seller and Scottish Prince. As an independent bottler it produces cask strength single bottlings under the name Scotts Selection.

  • Lovely distillery producing a wide range of whisky. If you like a dram and want some history too, this the place to go.
  • Stunningly beautiful distillery. Great whisky. By appointment only, although they took pity on me and let me do a tasting and wander around the grounds.
