Glen Spey Whisky Distillery History.

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.  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.

The first time a non-Scottish company had acquired ownership of a Scotch distillery.  An indication to the extent to which whisky was becoming regarded as an important product.

In 1962 Gilbey merged with Justin & Brooks and United Vintners to form International Distillers & Vintners.

During the 1970 renovation  another pair of stills added.

At some point in 1972 IDV was taken over by Grand Metropolitan.

Due to the mergers of the 1980-90’s the distillery eventually became part of the Diageo portfolio.
