Speyburn 15 Year Old Speyside Single Malt (70cl, 46%)
A 15 year old single malt from the Speyburn distillery, introduced to their core range in the latter half of 2017. Maturing in a combination of American and Spanish oak casks for 15 years.
Speyburn distillery was built by John Hopkin & Co at the end of the 19th century, eventually passing into the hands of DCL (now Diageo) in 1916. With the exception of a 4 year silence in the 1930s, they operated the distillery until 1991 when it was sold to current owners, Inver House. Aside from the short-lived and rare Flora & Fauna release, there are no distillery bottlings of its single malt from the United Distillers era or earlier, and it was not until Inver House acquired it that its single malt brand was launched. Predominantly sold in the US, it is still something of a rarity (despite its sales volume).
