Mill of Rothes was founded in 1878 by local grain merchant, James Stuart who was the then licensee of Macallan. In 1888 he renamed the distillery to Glen Spey, bought Macallan out and sold it to London Gin giants, W&A Gilbey, whom set to work creating the infamous Spey Royal blend. Eventually merging with London wine vendor, Justerini & Brooks, the distillery then created IDV, and set out to perfect the J&B blend in time for yet another merger in 1997. This time it saw a partnership between IDV and Guinness which brought Diageo into fruition.

The distillery’s Flora & Fauna range showcases Diageo’s lesser known distilleries with a smorgasbord of single malts.

This series is a collection of single cask whiskies that were selected on the 17th of April to best represent the 27 single malt distilleries owned by Diageo. The Managers' Choice range takes it's name from the group of distillery managers who were part of the panel of experts.
