Description

Originally known as Millhaugh, an extension to the Mill of Rothes, Glen Spey was converted from an oatmeal mill in 1878. The distillery is one of just a handful that use purifiers on the stills, resulting in greater reflux that leads to a lighter style of spirit.

The nose here is bright and fresh, with well-woven fruit notes accompanied by light buttery characteristics and a trace of smokiness. On the palate, sweet and rounded fruit is cut through with some nice toasty notes. Lingering, elegant and charming to the last.

About this SPIRIT

Glen Spey Distillery, Speyside

Glen Spey Distillery, Speyside

Glen Spey was founded by the licence holder of Macallan, James Stuart, who altered an old mill to make it a distillery in 1884.

It currently belongs to the same family as Knockando, The Singleton of Auchroisk, and Strathmill. All are part of  Diageo.
Glen Spey malt contributes to blends like Spey Royal and the vatted malt Stathspey -indeed the vast majority of the output is used in blends. Single malts (rare) appear as part of independent bottlings or in the Diageo's collection "Fauna & Flora".

Speyside Whisky

To some Speyside represents the jewel in whisky’s crown. Speyside is the home of legal whisky production and it’s best known examples. Around the world Glenlivet, Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenrothes and Glenfarclas typify all that whisky, at it’s best has to offer. At it’s heart running from the Monadhliath mountains north to the sea, is the River Spey. It is the fastest flowing river in Britain, and also well known for its salmon fishing.

Speyside is the principal whisky-producing region: Speyside has within it some forty-six operating distilleries - over half the total number in the entire Scotland.

Speysides are essentially sweet whiskies. They have little peaty character They are typically highly perfumed, feminine and elegant.

The classical nature of Speyside’s malts means that a number of the finest malts are used almost exclusively for blending. It is the top Speysider’s that give good blends their ‘Top Dressing’. 

Malts such as Mortlach, Glen Elgin, Strathmill and Benrinnes are rarely found as distillery bottlings, however when individual casks are tracked down by independent bottlers such as our Own Selection Single Malt Whiskies the resultant whisky can be quite wonderful.
