Edit Distillery Ride Join us on this escorted ride to one of Scotland's best kept secrets. Nestled within the magnificent Cairngorm mountains the Spey Distillery is acknowledged as being the prettiest of all Scotland's distilleries. Originally a barley mill and croft dating back to the 1700's it closed in 1965. Over the next 25 years it was slowly and lovingly converted into a single malt distillery which started producing spirit on Christmas Day 1990. The distillery draws its water from the Spey River tributary..... The River Tromie using the old mill lade which originally ran the waterwheel that powered the old mill. This small boutique distillery is nurtured by a passionate, experienced team of highly skilled craftsmen dedicated to crafting the highest quality spirit in each and every drop. This escorted ride out will travel down the B9152 (the old A9) to Kingussie before turning on to the scenic B970 to the distillery. Returning to Aviemore on the B970 via Rothiemurchus. The total mileage will be 30 miles. Numbers on this ride will be limited so be sure to register early to avoid disappointment.27/08/2017 12:30:0030 Registration not open yet
