World's Only Malt Whisky Trail Launches Podcast
Spey is pleased to announce that the world’s only Malt Whisky Trail®, based in Moray Speyside, launched its own podcast series in June 2017, dedicated to showcasing the ultimate Scotch experience, inviting listeners to uncover the secrets of malt whisky country and get a taste of the very best of Scotland in beautiful Moray Speyside.
The Malt Whisky Trail podcast is hosted by Spey Marketing and PR Associate and Speyside resident, Samantha Staniforth, who originally hails from North Carolina. As a whisky enthusiast herself, Samantha works to uncover the secrets behind the nine sites that make up The Malt Whisky Trail by speaking with the guardians of centuries of know-how and the craftspeople behind the production of whisky, as well as some surprise well-known whisky enthusiasts along the way.
The first episode released on Father’s Day included father and son William and Matthew Patterson from Dufftown who work at Glenfiddich Distillery, home to the world’s most-awarded single malt. Subsequent podcast episodes feature interviews with principal members from each site, including Glen Moray Master Distiller Graham Coull, Glen Grant Master Distiller Dennis Malcolm, and Speyside Cooperage General Manager Andrew Russell, who uncover exclusive details and top tips for visitors traveling along The Trail.
The Malt Whisky Trail podcast is produced in house by Team Spey. Why not check out the podcast episodes on itunes and subscribe to stay up-to date here: http://maltwhiskytrail.com/malt-whisky-trail-podcast/

Day in the Life of a PR Associate
Recently at SPEY we have adopted a flexible working scheme, allowing team members to find balance between working from home and out of our offices, based in Speyside and Edinburgh. On Mondays, we like to kick-start each week with all members based out of our two office spaces, where we plan for the days ahead and can maximise the time for in-person catch-ups, something we have really missed over the past two years.
