Speyside distillery was the second of those built by George Christie, his first being the North of Scotland grain plant in 1957. His malt distillery was not completed until 30 years later however, and only began production in 1990. In its short history it has appeared in several guises, including Drumguish, Spey, Cu Dhub, Glentromie and Black Burn.
Built by drystone dyker Alex Fairlie, Speyside was only commissioned in 1962 and finished in 1976. It wasn't until 1991 that the first spirit flowed from the stills and yet in a very short time it has become the third best selling single malt in Taiwan.
The Spey single malt brand was launched in 2014.
