Speyside, generally thought of as the area around the river Spey, has many distilleries. Speyside whiskies are renowned for their fruity notes and lighter notes ranging from grassy to sweet. The region is home to a huge number of distilleries and many once tapped the river Spey as their source of water.
Some still use local burns, including Glenfiddich who bought the land where the local burn runs to preserve their supply.
A Speyside guided tour will allow you to taste some of the many different whiskies on offer without worrying about driving. Calum is always willing to help you understand the region’s whiskies and explain about some of our amazing countryside and scenery, be it lochs, glens, castles and much more.
