The Glen Spey distillery can be found below the ruins of Castle Rothes, previously home to the Earls of Rothes who lived there until a catastrophic fire in 1662. The Glen Spey whisky distillery was founded as the Mill of Rothes in 1878 by James Stuart and Co, the buildings having previously served as an oatmeal mill. Six years later, James Stuart purchased the Macallan distillery and in 1887 the English company W & A Gilbey acquired the Glen Spey for £11,000.
This Single Malt Scotch Whisky was distilled at the Glen Spey distillery back in 1997, and spent 21 years in a refill hogshead with only 356 bottles from the outturn.
The whisky is elegant even at the high ABV.
