A Guide to Scotch Whisky Regions - Speyside
The Speyside whisky region is home to some of Scotland’s most famous and recognisable whisky names.
Of the six Scotch whisky regions – Campbeltown, Highlands, Islands, Islay, Lowlands, and Speyside – it is arguably the most important. Speyside whisky is the heartbeat of the industry with over 50 of Scotland’s 140+ distilleries calling it home.
Each of these Scotch whisky regions have traditionally been known for each having a particular style. Speyside whiskies are renowned for their soft, gentle, and fruity style. This makes them accessible and approachable, probably more than any other whiskies of Scotland. This wide appeal is what has made Speyside whiskies so popular.
