It's that time of year again when whisky lovers from all over the world are about to descend on Speyside to celebrate their favourite drams and all things whisky. 

In advance of the festivities Scran brings you an exclusive insight into this historic distillery and its 125 years of whisky production.

On this episode Rosalind visits Speyburn Distillery and meets Manager Euan Henderson who shows her what visitors can expect once they open the doors for this year's Spirit of Speyside festival. 

Rosalind discovers how the old distillery would have run and is particularly impressed by how pristine the equipment still looks. The tour continues into the new distillery which was developed in 2015.

There, Rosalind is lucky enough to be the first person from outside the distillery to taste their 16 year old festival bottling for this year's Spirit of Speyside festival coming up at the end of April.
