In het centre of Speycide you can relaxe at this nice covered distillery. Other are in the neighbourhood. The small town near the riverbanks give you the correct feeling of silence.

Been there done that on distillery tours. So went for tasting the specials rather than seeing more Mash Tuns and the like. Was a great choice. Kristen our guide was fantastic and the tasting exceptional. Would recommend highly.
