Winning bid: £480.00
Lot number: 000-0005

Built by drystone dyker Alex Fairlie, Speyside was only commissioned in 1962 and finished in 1987. It wasn't until 1991 that the first spirit flowed from the stills - with the first single malt, Drumguish (named after the surrounding village) launched in 1993 - and yet in a very short time it has become the third best-selling single malt in Taiwan.

Recent releases include the 100% bourbon-matured Trutina and the peated barley version dubbed Fumare.

This bottle was Spey’s first every festival bottle, produced for the Whisky Festival Den Hague. The festival bottle was never released in the UK, only released in the Netherlands. However, Paul managed to ‘smuggle’ a bottle back in his suitcase, preserving this piece of Spey history.

This bottle was kindly donated by Paul Dempsey from the Speyside Distillery.
