MM Distillery profile:
The Speyburn distillery started production in 1897 - but only barely... The proprietors were keen to start the distillation in the year of Queen Victoria's diamond jubilee, but they almost didn't make it. Production was scheduled to start on November 1, but the owners didn't manage to get the stills running before the middle of December of that year. Like many other distilleries in Scotland, Speyburn was designed by Charles Doig. The required investment was 17,000 pounds - a modest price for a distillery on a prime location .
