Award-Winning Distillery Tour
Opening our doors to the public for the first time in 2023 as part of the festival, our tickets sold out in just 12 hours, and we also received the highly coveted ‘Best New Event Award’.

Nominated for Best New Event Award 2024
Having already been shortlisted for this year’s Best New Event Award, anticipation is also building for the one-night-only celebrations we're planning to mark the first anniversary of the Distillery opening to the public. Taking place on Saturday 4th May, Speyburn After Hours will be an evening of great whisky, food and music in the Distillery grounds - and it's set to be a highlight of this year's festival.
The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival 2024
Spanning six days and over 700 events, the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival has been attracting visitors from around the world since 1999.
Every year, over 50 distilleries in the county of Moray showcase the unique taste of Speyside whisky. This year, Speyburn will be hosting an evolution of our award-winning tour as well as a one-off event created especially for the 2024 festival.
Euan Henderson, Distillery Manager at Speyburn said: "The Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival is iconic and a true mainstay in any whisky-lovers' diary."
"Last year's Festival was a huge success for us at Speyburn. We opened our doors to visitors for the first time to mark our 125th anniversary and were amazed by the level of demand. The tours were so popular we sold out in just 12 hours and we also received the 'Best New Event Award'.
"This year we are once again pulling out all the stops to share Speyburn's rich story with whisky fans from across the globe and look forward to welcoming visitors through our doors as part of the Festival."
Until then, Sláinte!
During the festival we’ll be hosting two tours led by our distillery team and a one-off evening event. You’ll discover all that our iconic distillery has to offer and, of course, enjoy a dram or two of our award-winning single malt in the process.
Last year we sold out in just 12 hours, so you'll need to be quick if you want to grab one of the Festival's hottest tickets.

125 years ago, Speyburn’s founder, John Hopkins, worked tirelessly with his team through freezing winter days and nights, determined to fill its first barrel of whisky in time to toast to Queen Victoria’s Diamon Jubilee. After overcoming several challenges, Hopkins was finally rewarded with the first barrel of Speyburn single malt Scotch whisky in December 1897.
125 years of craft and expertise go into each and every bottle of Speyburn. This has allowed Speyburn to perfect our whisky, resulting in a wonderful, uncomplicated dram, every time. Both traditional and innovative methods of production come together to create outstanding whisky.
In 2022, Speyburn 10 Year Old secured several awards including Gold at the International Spirits Challenge and Silver at the San Francisco World & Spirits Competition.
