About Spey Valley Brewery
Spey Valley Brewery was the first commercial micro brewery to be located in the heart of Speyside, creating the finest hand-crafted beers from the same water as Speyside’s world-renowned malt whiskies.
The company was founded in 2007 by a distiller, David MacDonald, and a local farmer, Innes MacPherson, who set out to produce world-class beers on the farm in Mulben. Initially brewing from a tiny pilot plant, for the first four years the brewery focused exclusively upon getting the recipes and the products right and distribution was confined to a limited number of local buyers. It wasn’t until 2011 that the first commercial casks arrived on the market.
Encouraged by the early success of our first beer, SpeyStout, the company expanded production in 2012 and began distributing more widely throughout the North East and further afield. In early 2016, production moved to a dedicated unit – still on the farm! – that has seen Spey Valley Brewery become the largest brewery in the local area.
Under the umbrella of CC Breweries (Consolidated Craft Breweries), Spey Valley Brewery merged with neighbouring Keith Brewery, renowned Alechemy Brewing of Livingston and most recently Broughton Ales in the Scottish Borders to create a Scottish supergroup of breweries! In doing so, the group has been able to collaborate on product ideas, sharing staff, logistics, equipment and other costly functions that contribute little to customer enjoyment of beer. Our vision is to bring the finest, most innovative beers in Scotland to the whole of Scotland and beyond.
