You can write the story of a distillery and talk of naught but business,
machines, technical details and statistics. It will be a true tale, but
it won’t be the whole tale. Craigellachie’s story is about more than
whisky.” Dave Broom, Craigellachie: The Romantic and the Pragmatic
Founded in 1891 by Peter Mackie of White Horse and Alexander Edward –
who also built the Craigellachie hotel alongside – Craigellachie
distillery stands proud in the heart of Speyside. But don’t be fooled
into thinking this is your typical Speyside dram: Craigellachie is
muscular and robust – a result of carefully calibrated production
process and the use of traditional worm tub condensers.
Usually closed to the public, this Spirit of Speyside Festival we invite
you to join us for a behind the scenes tour of this famed, unusually
stubborn distillery, naturally, with a dram (or two) along the way. Let
us tell you a tale or two about this legendary distillery.
