  • An incredible Spirit of Speyside 2019!

    The new events at Spirit of Speyside this year went down a storm  - and not even the snow stopped us or our interpid visitors. 

    Our Global Brand Ambassador Iain hosted tastings in the distillery and down on the banks of the River Avon, sometimes fighting through snow to get there. 

    We were delighted to welcome so many people to the distillery and hope that you all enjoyed it as much as we did. 

    Please keep watching - our events will be even bigger and better next year!


  • Award nomination at Spirit of Speyside!

    We are delighted to announce that our "Fireside Sessions" event at the world famous Spirit of Speyside has been nominated for a "Best New Event" award. 

    This event has our Global Brand Ambassador Iain Forteath, hosting an intimate tasting session on the banks of the stunning River Avon which is right next to the distillery. 

    Guests will enjoy a few really special drams, some stories and maybe even a song or two, accompanied by some specially chosen cigars and toasted marshmallows as well. All under a glorious Cairngorms sky, which will have a star or two in it by the time we walk back up to the distillery at the end of the event. 

    We can't wait!
