The most famous Scotch whisky regions

Speyside

Speyside is located in the north-east of Scotland in the vicinity of Spey River and is considered as the capital of Scotch whisky. Valleys from the source to the mouth of Spey River are literally studded with distilleries, a total of more than 48, where the real  Scottish masterpieces are being created. All whiskies produced in this region have fresh, delicately sweet flavor.

Highlands

This picturesque highland in the north of Scotland is one of the most expensive and beautiful regions of Europe - there you can find heather hills and famous green valleys of Scotland. This is also the largest region of malt whisky. Whisky produced here has an exquisite pepper-sweet flavor with a light smoke aroma.

Lowlands

The slight and light coloured whiskies are being produced in the southern part of Scotland, which is also known as the Scottish Garden. There is a relatively small amount of peat in this region, thus this whisky doesn’t have the typical strong peat aroma. Whisky from southern region has strong grassy and light fruity flavor.

Islay

This 25 miles long and 15 miles wide island is the largest island where whisky is being produced and simultaneously the smallest whisky region with only seven active whisky distilleries. Islay whisky has a strong masculine character with a strong ocean, iodine and peat aroma.

Campbeltown

Sea air of Kintyre Peninsula, where Campbeltown is located, gives this whisky a saltish flavor. More than 20 whisky distilleries formerly made this place a Scotch whisky production centre. However now just a few types of malt are being produced here. This whisky is characterized by mildly salty peat flavor.

Islands of Scotland

Arran, Jura, Mull, Skye and Orkneys are beautiful islands with a wild rocky landscape, where trees are rare, that is why the malt is being dried by burning peat. Due to this process it is possible to catch the nuances of peat smoke in the aroma of Scotch whisky. In it’s turn, the sea air gives this whisky a lightly salty taste.
