Bottle No 98-0096/1500

An 18 year old from Speyside distillery, situated in Kingussie. 

Speyside distillery was the second of those built by George Christie, his first being the North of Scotland grain plant in 1957. The whisky entrepreneur George Christie, who built the now-defunct North of Scotland grain distillery in 1957, commissioned the construction of a new single malt whisky distillery in Speyside in 1962. Beset by delays, the distillery was completed in 1987, the year after Christie had sold the company, and the new Speyside distillery finally began producing spirit in 1990.

Early bottlings of Speyside’s whisky, such as Drumguish, were not met with great success in the UK, but the distillery subsequently found its niche producing the Spey Malt and several proprietary blends for Asian markets. In its short history it has appeared in several guises, including Drumguish, Spey, Cu Dhub, Glentromie and Black Burn. After being bought in 2000 by a consortium including George Christie’s son Ricky, Speyside changed hands again in 2012 when it was taken over by Harvey’s of Edinburgh. Recent releases include the 100% bourbon-matured Trutina and the peated barley version dubbed Fumare.
