Spey Single Malt Whisky: The secret that cannot be told…only discovered. Keep the secret!

John and Robert Harvey who founded the business in 1770 also started a unique family tradition on Christmas Day1787 - a family only whisky called  "Spey Chairman's Choice".

Certificate of Authenticity

Since 1770 - Christmas Day had always been special in the Harvey's family as this was the day that the Harvey's Chairman selected his own limited choice - Spey "Chairman's Choice" - only to be enjoyed by family and friends at the annual Christmas Day lunch and the months of the New Year.

However, Christmas Day 1814 was extra special for it was that day that Chairman Robert Harvey shared a Spey "Chairman's Choicwhisky cask to be given to Lord Byrone" with one of England's most famous poets - Lord Byron.

Lord Byron was enchanted by Spey "Chairman's Choice"but at the same time invited Robert Harvey to select a "Royal" version to be offered at his own wedding in eight days time with a "Royal" cask to be given to Lord Byron's close friend, His majesty King George III.

Thus, Spey "Royal Choice"was created to commemorate  Lord Byron's wedding with Lady Annabella Milbanks at Seaham Hall on 2nd January 1815 with a cask then gratefully received by King George III at Kew Palace London.

Nowadays, Spey "Chairman's Choice"still continues the Christmas Day celebration but now with limited aged editions allocated to various parts of the world. We apologize if, due to the strict allocation, you have not always been able to find or buy Spey "Chairman's Choice".
