Speyburn

Translation: Speybach
Region: Speyside


God save the Queen.

The builders of the Speyburn distillery must have been pretty ardent supporters of the British royal family. They built the distillery in 1897 - the year of Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. And it was extremely important to them to produce the first whiskey in this very jubilee year. So important that shortly before Christmas, some fatigued workers in the still unfinished distillery went to work. In the doorless and windowless Still House, exactly one barrel of Speyburn Malt Whiskey was produced in icy cold weather. Goal achieved!


A little history

Speyburn was founded in 1897 by the brothers John and Edward Hopkin and their cousin Edward Broughton. Her company John Hopkin & Co already owned the Tobermory distillery on the island of Mull. The Speyburn distillery was built on the outskirts of the village of Rothes, in a picturesque narrow valley, the "Glen of Rothes", surrounded by forest. The architect of the still very pretty to look at distillery was the famous Charles Chree Doig, inventor of the characteristic pagoda roofs.
John Hopkin & Co of Distillers Company Ltd. was founded in 1916. (DCL) bought.In the 30s and 40s, the distillery was partially closed. In the fifties there was a decisive innovation: A tractor replaced the previously used horse and cart.
In 1962, Speyburn went to the Scottish Malt Distillers (SMD), which in 1966 closed the distillery's own drummaltings.
Since 1991 Speyburn belongs to the American Inver House Distillers.


What do I actually have in the glass?

Speyburn produces a medium-heavy, wonderfully flowery malt. Typical: the fruity sweetness, spicy aromas and a long dry finish.


3 reasons to love Speyburn

1) Because the sight of the distillery makes romantic hearts beat faster.
2) Because soft and flowery can not be wrong.
3) Because Queen Victoria was sure happy then.


The one drama for the lonely island

To get to know and appreciate the flowery Speyburn character, the 10-year standard bottling is ideal. And if you want something special for a special occasion: The 25-year-old original bottling from American Bourbon and Fino-Sherry casks is a softer, warming dream of a malt.
