Glen Spey Whisky

Glen Spey Speyside Whisky

James Stuart a local corn merchant with distilling interests in the Macallan distillery at Craigellachie established the Glen Spey distillery in 1885.
He appears to have built a distilling utility on to his oatmeal mill called Mills of Rothes and this developed to become the fully-fledged Glen Spey distillery.
The Glen Spey distillery was sold to W&A Gilbey Company Gin Distillers of London in 1887. This was the first time a non-Scottish company had acquired ownership of a Scotch distillery and is an indication to the extent to which whisky was becoming regarded as an important product.
