Thanks to you Speyburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky has enjoyed a sustained growth in markets around the world for many years and is now one of the most recognised Speyside malts. And as the community of Speyburn fans grows and the demand keeps climbing from year to year, we have to make sure we are laying down enough stock to quench your thirst for classic Scotch single malt in ten, fifteen, or even twenty five years' time. It's our responsibility today to make enough great whisky for tomorrow.
That's why we are delighted to announce plans for a Distillery expansion on our historic site in Rothes. We are investing £4 million to increase the production capacity at Speyburn Distillery from 1.8 million litres to over 4 million litres of alcohol per year. This will ensure that sufficient amount of stock will be laid down every week to ensure continued supply and growth for the brand for many years to come.
The traditional production process we employ to make our award-winning malt will of course remain the same. But we are going to use more up-to-date design and equipment, expertly manufactured by our friends at Forsyths Coppersmiths and fabricators just around the corner from the Distillery, to achieve greater efficiency. We predict that the energy savings may be as high as 20% with the new set-up in operation and that means a smaller carbon footprint, something which has been very high on our agenda during the planning process.
We aim to start production in the extension by the end of 2014. We will no doubt keep you posted on the progress but for now help us celebrate this exciting new chapter in the history of our distillery by raising a dram to the continued success of Speyburn.
Please enjoy responsibly.
Speyburn Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky is urging whisky lovers to get behind a new campaign to help conserve Scottish wildlife.
To support the invaluable work of the Spey Foundation conservation charity and celebrate Scotland’s great outdoors, we have launched a new nationwide competition. For a three month period, whenever someone signs up to Clan Speyburn - our free members community - we will donate £1 to the pioneering charity for every competition entry they receive.
The campaign stems from an existing one year partnership with the Spey Foundation to support their ongoing conservation work along the River Spey and will fund a project that opens up the Spey burns to wildlife by overcoming in-river obstacles that prevent salmon and sea trout from spawning. The project will also include protecting and restoring the catchment’s natural features to help improve the habitat and biodiversity of the area and the river bank.
Until 31st December 2013 anyone from the UK who signs up to Clan Speyburn via our website will be help the Spey Foundation raise vital funds to help the continued conservation of the River Spey through this initiative.
Since the first single barrel of Speyburn was created in 1897 pure water has remained at the heart of our whisky which is why we are delighted to announce that we are now supporting American Rivers, a leading organisation working to protect and restore America’s rivers and streams.
Like Speyburn, American Rivers appreciate how our rivers connect us to each other, nature, and future generations. The organisation has fought since 1973 to preserve these connections, helping protect and restore more than 150,000 miles of rivers for years to come.
We are proud to help fund the vital work of this organisation and look forward to telling you more about how our partnership is helping make a significant impact on the health of rivers and communities across America.
More good news, you should now be able to find our brand new Speyburn 25 Year Old in the shops. Laid down in American oak Fino sherry and ex-bourbon casks, this is a whisky that slowly matures by the banks of the Granty Burn – for a quarter of a century. All those years mean the taste is rounded and smooth. And you’ll notice it’s got a longer, more warming finish than you might expect. Our oldest, most exclusive Speyburn now comes in a beautiful silver wooden box with two exclusive tasting cups. Every box is a one-off signed personally by Distillery Manager Bobby Anderson
