Our founder John Hopkins knew a thing or two about instinct. He carved his own path through life, trusting his intuition every step of the way. Like Hopkins, we believe that following your instincts leads to somewhere great. While hunting for the perfect spot for his distillery, Hopkins discovered the Granty Burn – an untouched stream hidden in a secluded Speyside valley. He knew that the exceptionally pure water of this burn would produce a remarkable whisky with a naturally refreshing character. Hopkins trusted his intuition and built the Speyburn distillery right there in the glen, using authentic river stones from the bed of the fast-flowing River Spey itself. Over 100 years after its founding, Speyburn remains the only distillery to use the pure, crystal-clear water of the Granty Burn.

WE TRUSTED OUR INSTINCTS AND CARVED OUR OWN PATH

Today our award-winning family of Scotch whiskies continue to delight those who’re instinctively drawn to them. Bold, bright and full of character. Our Speyside single malts are as inspiring to newcomers as they are to seasoned whisky enthusiasts. Furthermore, it proves that those who discover Speyburn discover the rewards of instinct. We trusted our instincts and carved our own path. Now it’s your turn. Trust Your Instincts.

BUILDING IN THE VALLEY CAME WITH ITS OWN CHALLENGES

In addition, these narrow glens aren’t a common spot for distilleries and for good reason. Space was a precious commodity and every last inch had to pull its weight. Good thing Hopkins was a believer in innovation. Instead of building out, he built our distillery up through the trees. Instead of one vast drying floor, he raised his malt upwards using layer upon layer of mesh, infusing it with the vibrancy of the Speyside air. Moreover, he embraced the world of invention and ours became the first malt distillery to adopt drum maltings. And one of the first to reap the rewards.
