Speyside

Speyside Malts, from the region around the river Spey, is the most concentrated area of distilleries in Scotland. A lot of the famous names are there, but, as with everything, we focus on the great whiskies that are value for money, not the showy big names. 
As with all the other regions, we focus on independent bottlers, with some super expressions of well and lesser known distilleries. 
Do look at Tamdhu as well. Once owned by Macallan, they closed and sold the distillery in 2012 and new owners, Ian Macleod Distillers, have done a brilliant job with this super distillery.
