Lesser-known Speyside-based distillery Speyburn is not a new up-and-coming site that is in the process of building an initial reputation – indeed Speyburn was founded back in 1897 by Charles Doig (the chap who invented the pagoda as a means to provide ventilation to distillery kilns). However, few people outside of the US and whisky enthusiasts circles have really heard of the distillery and its bottlings. Until the last couple of years, Speyburn has been marketed as a very low cost single malt option – particularly in the American market, but that bargain-price strategy has not engendered a widespread fan base, nor a particularly high reputation. But things are gradually starting to change over at Speyburn.
