SPEY VALLEY BREWERY
Where: Mulben, near Keith, Speyside
About Us: Spey Valley Brewery produces a range of distinctive beers from a stunning location in the heart of Speyside. Using the same water and barley as neighbours producing world-renowned whiskies, David MacDonald (a former distiller) uses his knowledge and skills to create unique beers, which appeal to both discerning enthusiasts and to those newly discovering the wonderful world of beer, alike.
Spey Valley Brewery celebrates its 10th year this year, as well as a record year of growth, having just moved into a brewery 10x the size of the original! To better keep up with demand, the company invested in a brand new purpose-built 20-barrel brewhouse in 2016, making the brewery the largest and most modern in Moray.
Must Try: Sunshine on Keith – probably the lowest ABV in the room, but it packs a flavour punch well above what you would expect from a 3.5% IPA. It’s full to bursting with American hops giving it a wonderful nose, flavour and bitterness, which just has to be sampled to be believed.
