The Distillery

Despite its evocative name, this distillery is not considered by everybody to be geographically settled in the Speyside area. But the river Spey flows behind the distillery. The Speyside distillery is the closest to the burn of the Speyside river so it really deserves to be considered as a being part of the Speyside area.
George Christie founded the blending company "Speyside Distillery and Bonding" in 1955. Speyside stills
In reality, even if the distillery is not settled in the traditional Speyside area, the distillery is the closest distillery to the source of the River Spey ( the River Tromie), and it even has a view on the Spey.

One year later, he acquired the ground called "Old Milton Estate" in Glen Tromie, on which the village Drumguish and the old mill who made floor for the village people up to 1949 were settled. This old mill was build in 1710 and currently houses the office of the distillery's director.
To insure a constant quality to their blends, the Christie family decided to create their own malt distillery in a building settled on their property. This construction has been build by Alex Fairly alone, and it took him 25 years to achieve it. He used the dry-stone dyking method, which was labor-intensive, but resulted in a beautifully handcrafted building.
About 20% of the production is marketed as single malt under the name Drumguish, and the remaining part is sas kept for ageing or is used in the blends Speyside and the vatted malt Glentromie. But nowadays, there is no blend produced anymore by the distillery. The remaining 80% are used now for the Speyside Single Malt which was available as a 10 y.o. but now solely available as a 12 y.o.
The distillery owners also buy and bottle casks for Scott's Selection.

Whisky is an alcoholic drink. Let's prefer quality to quantity as the abuse of alcohol beverages can damage the health. Consuming alcoholic drinks during pregnancy, even in small quantities, can seriously affect the health of the child. Consumption of alcohol impairs your ability to drive a car or operate machinery, and may cause health problems.
