Smuggler's trails, the river Spey and the railways were all important to the success of Speyside's single malts.

Join Ann Miller, the Dram Queen, to discover more about these themes during tutored tastings bringing each to life with a selection of samples to illustrate the fascinating heritage of whiskies from Speyside.

With the arrival of the railways in the middle of the nineteenth century offering reliable transport to the cities of Scotland and beyond, the opportunities for Speyside’s single malts expanded. Many distilleries were established close to the railways which brought them coal and exported casks. Discover their stories with Ann as you enjoy tasting samples from a selection of the rich variety of these Speyside whiskies.

This event will take place in the Dram Queen's exclusive tasting room. With a maximum of 12 guests, current guidance on Covid precautions will be observed.

It may be possible to arrange a minibus from and back to the Elgin area – please contact me for more information.
