Speyside Distillers produced its first spirit in the late 1990. More recently it has been creating more mature whiskies, initially under other names but have now begun to use Speyside. The building was designed to look old and traditional with the use of gabled stone. Its opening was a dream come true for its first owner George Christie, who had dreamed and planned it for three or four decades. One of his first malts was popular in the United States under the name Glentromie. The Speyside distillery is in the small town of Drumguish, where the small river Tromie flows. The river reaches the highest reaches of the Spey. The Speyside takes its name not for the location but from a distillery that was in nearby Kingussie between 1895 and 1910.
