Perhaps Scotland’s best known Whisky producing region is Speyside. Located in the area of Morayshire within the Highlands of Scotland, for whisky purposes, it is distinguished as a sub-region of the Highlands due to the great concentration of distilleries in the area and for some stylistic similarities in the malts produced in the regions.
Speyside Whisky is generally known for it's light and fruity qualities, although this can not be said of all whisky produced in the region. As the most distillery dense regions many of the largest and most recognised whisky brands globally can be found in the region. Examples include The Macallan, Glenfiddich, Glenlivet, Aberlour, Mortlach and more.
