The Speyside region is located on the North Sea in the heart of the Highlands. This region produces about 60% of the single malt volumes in Scotland and is the region with the most distilleries still in operation (about 50). All are organized around the river Spey which is the main river and which gave its name to the Speyside region. Other rivers flow and their name evokes the distilleries that drink there like, La Livet for Glenlivet, the Fiddich for Glenfiddich, the Deveron for Glen deveron and they flow into the Moray golf course that gave Glen Moray.

Speyside Malt whiskeys are not peated (with some exceptions, if peat-fired Malts are used), the whiskeys common to this region are a certain roundness and a lot of elegance. The aromas are always balanced between the fruity notes and the notes of freshly harvested grains, these whiskeys evoke the great classicism of Scottich Malts.

Glenlivet was King George IV's favorite whiskey.

  • Cardhu

    Cardhu is a Speyside ideally placed upstream of the Spey River which allows it to benefit from a particularly pure water. Cardhu sells 75% of its single malt production in France and Spain where it enjoys a formidable reputation. Its presence in the selection of classic malts has helped this reputation but the intrinsic quality of these malts is for many. Cardhu produces a tasty, silky malt that is fairly easy at first, evoking honey, malt, wood, but also toffee (English caramel) and fruity notes like apple.

    One third of Cardhu's production is sold as single malt, the rest is an essential component of Johnnie Walker's beautiful blends. This is why it is virtually impossible to find Cardhu at independent bottlers.

    There are some tasty anecdotes to mention about Cardhu. Before 1981 this distillery was named Cardow from the name of the farm which distilled clandestinely from 1811 to 1824 when an official license was bought. During her clandestine period, the control officials were always well received by Helen Cumming, the wife of John, who offered them lunch, she was eager to plant a red flag on the edge of the farm to warn the neighborhood of the arrival. controllers. Helen had found a quick and easy way to get her fermentations trays into bread bins. The first stills William Grant bought for Glenfiddich's startup were Cardhu's first stills.

  • Cragganmore Speyside...

    Buy in calais cheap whiskey like Cragganmore Speyside Single Malt Whiskey. Cragganmore was founded in 1869 by 36-year-old John Smith, but already had incredible experience built at Glenlivet, Glenfarclass, Macallan and Clydesdale, a distillery that disappeared in the early 20 th century. The distillery owes its name to the very mineral source where the water is taken, the Craggan, but also the hill from which were extracted the stones that were used to build the distillery, the Craggan Mor (big rock in gà © rique).

    The choice of Ballindaloch village in Banffshire could have been solely at its source ... but John Smith was also passionate about the great novelty of the moment ... the railroad. A railroad was built along the Strathspey Road, and John Smith was only a few hundred meters to build to be the first to give his distillery benefits of a direct service by the rail for its supplies. barrels, barley and charcoal.

    Cragganmore is away from the traditional Whiskey trail, the Whiskey Trail of the Spey Valley. His notoriety is also due to his presence in the selection of Classic Malt who has directed the spotlight on these very fine whiskeys, very elegant and fruity (apple and candied fruit). The special shape of the neck of its stills which limits the maximum reflux contributes to this specificity.

  • Benriach

    Benriach (the deer hill in Gaelic) is a Speyside distillery, it has long been unknown to the general public because it is mainly used to produce malts used for blends. The creation of this distillery goes back to 1898 and is the work of John Duff a member of the Grant family. Unfortunately Benriach had to close in 1900 following the bankruptcy of Cie Pattisson who was the biggest buyer of whiskeys of the time. This resounding Crack nearly jeopardized the entire whiskey industry in Scotland.

    Benriach was built a stone's throw from Longmorn and was also named a Longmorn 2. Following the Pattisson bankruptcy, the Benriach tool was used as a malt for Longmorn. It was not until 1965 that it was rehabilitated in distillery by Glenlivet. The whiskeys of Benriach have a dual identity now clearly assumed! This Speyside distillery produces non-peated malts (normal for a Speyside) but also peat malts (more amazing!). The reason is simple, in 1978 the distillery was bought by Chivas who was later bought by Seagram. The Seagram group needed peaty whiskeys to make their blends and the demand for peated Islay whiskeys was starting to climb! It was decided in 1983 to entrust Benriach with the production of peat malts from dried barley on a peat fire. The version "Curiositas" comes from malts of this time. In 2001 Pernod Ricard bought Seagram. A campaign of rationalization of the productions leads to the observation that Bentiach distilled only 3 months per year only !! Pernod Ricard decided to separate from 4 distilleries including Benriach in 2004. Billy Walker, the former director of Burn Stewart found investors and bought the distillery. This was Benriach's real rebirth, as the range quickly changed from a single reference to 10 years, to a rich range of treasures in the cellars. The production of peated whiskey at Benrtiach represents more or less 10% of volumes.

The Grant family was the first to sell their bottles in canister or cardboard packaging, they understood first and foremost the importance of Duty Free shops at airports or transatlantic companies for the global spread of the Glenfiddich brand.

The Glenlivet style was copied so much that the mark was laid by Mr Smith in 1876 and that various actions in justices from 1880 resulted in 1884 that the Glenlivet distillery obtained the right to be named "The Glenlivet" the only and true Glenlivet Distillery the whiskey of the Livet River Valley. but other distilleries were entitled to use the Glenlivet suffix as a pledge of style and quality still with the Glen Glenlivet Glen for example.

The highlight of recent years is the acquisition in 2008 of the latter to the Pernod Ricard group by the Benriach distillery led by Billy the former director of Burn Stewart a great name for whiskey in Scotland.

Benromach offers a rather powerful style of whiskey mostly aged in sherry casks (even though bourbon cask trials have been conducted). Benromach generally offers notes of candied fruit cake, prunes, orange, figs and nuts. It is not impossible to consider a Glendronach as a digestive. Rumor has it that Glengronach's reputation in Edinburgh was "business failing" one night, the owner was walking the streets and was hit by two prostitutes.

The sherry casks bring to the range of notes of Christmas Pudding, blond tobacco, raisins and nutmeg. It is this same family spirit that prevailed when the Grant family chose the Mälher Besse family (merchant in Bordeaux and owner of Château Palmer in Margaux) to distribute Glenfarclas in France.
