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!

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!

The team are busy getting ready for the world famous Spirit of Speyside festival which starts next week, running from the 1st to 6th May.

This year we are delighted to be involved not only in the event at Dufftown (where we hope to see all our old friends, and make some new ones as well!) but also in some unique new events that we are running for the first time ever this year. 

Our Global Brand Ambassador, Iain Forteath, is hosting three new events, that will give all our visitors some unique perspectives on the distillery and our whisky. So whether it's having a whisky cocktail and a bacon roll in the morning, or enjoying a toasted marshmallow and a dram by the river in the evening, there's an event that will suit everyone. 

Our Production Manager, Graeme Bowie, is also hosting some unique whisky tasting events, both at the distillery and in Dufftown. For more info and to purchase tickets for Iain or Graeme's events please visit the Spirit of Speyside website - but be quick, they are selling out fast!

Hope to see you at the distillery or in Dufftown - enjoy the festival!
