The Glen Spey distillery was built by James Stuart in 1885. James Stuart owned Macallan until 1892. The water that the distillery uses is drawn from the Doonie Burn and the barley they use is lightly peated. They mature their whisky in ex-bourbon and refill casks.
The bottle has an emblem of a Goldcrest which is Britain’s smallest bird, and this can be heard singing in the pine trees by Castle Rothes. They produce several varieties of whisky including an 8 year and 12 year, but the majority of whisky is used in blends.
