Spynie distillery

Speyside Single Malt Scotch Whisky

Spynie lies two miles north of Elgin and is renowned for its long-ruined palace, once home to the Bishops of Moray. Maps of the 19th and early 20th centuries also show Holy Trinity Church and the Elgin-Lossiemouth rail line.

The area contains Spynie House as well as a hill, quarry, loch and canal all also bearing the name Spynie. Where the distillery sat is not clear, especially as it existed back in the 1790s and is likely long-demolished.
