Glasgow Whisky purchases Tromie Mills Distillery, known as Speyside Distillery

Speyside Distillers’ lease expires in 2025


The picturesque distillery in Drumguish, Kingussie, where Speyside Distillers produce their The Spey Single Malt Whisky, has a new owner, the company Glasgow Whisky.

Until the current lease expires in spring 2025, Speyside Distillers will continue to produce there, however, then they want to move the production of The Spey into a new distillery, which is to be built in the Speyside by then. Details on the location and size of the planned distillery are not yet known.

Glasgow Whisky was founded in 2007 by Graham Taylor and Stuart Hendry and operates as a whisky blender and independent bottler. With the acquisition of the distillery in Drumguish they take the next step and want to start production theirselves.

"The addition of a distillery in Drumguish is an exciting and natural progression as we continue to build for the future. Since our launch in 2007, we have seen significant growth in all areas of our Scotch whisky brands and products across the globe. The distillery will enable us to add to our portfolio and continue to supply our clients around the world with quality Scotch whisky,” said Graham Taylor.

Stuart continued: “Our plans for the distillery will give us the opportunity to celebrate an established and known site, whilst bringing it into the 21st century in terms of distilling innovation, sustainability and production methods. We are extremely excited to have this opportunity to evolve our business.”

From 2025, the Speyside Distillery will see extensive renovations and a new start with a modernized production facility. Pictures of the distillery and a video about a visit there in 2019 can be found here in our distillery database.
