Speyside Malt Whisky

Strathisla Speyside Malt Whisky Distillery in Scotland

Speyside, a region that borders much of the length of the River Spey on the eastern side of the Highlands, is home to half of Scotland’s Scotch Whisky distilleries which are drawn together around a system of rivers.

The whiskies of this region are noted for their elegance and complexity. The flow of water over hills of granite and through moors of peat, add a refined smokiness to many of the malt whiskies and the slightly more sheltered nature of the terrain imparts a specific gentleness and delicacy to their character.
