Joanna McDonough: “My Trutina melody painting is like its accompanying whisky. The melody is the true tune of this spirit: it is honest and, like the tune, is a linear succession of notes which the listener perceives as the ‘music’ – the whisky is also a succession of tastes resulting in a ‘whole’ taste experience. The painting is honest and clear.”
Spey distillery is located in Kingussie very close to Inverness. It is the southern most distillery in the Speyside region. The distillery was built in 1962 by the owner of a nearby grain whisky distillery. Works on the site lasted until 1987. The first drops of spirit were distilled in 1990.
Two small stills were installed, they had to be cut down to size and were sourced from the now defunct Lochside distillery. The distillery has a production capacity of some 500 thousand liters of alcohol per year. The Speyside Distillery company is the current owner of Spey after they purchased it in 2013.
The owners of the distillery sell in in different markets under different names. It is the base whisky for Mongolia's best selling blended Scotch: Yoko
