Re-starting production will see beers such as its Speyside lager influenced by local beauty spot Randolph’s Leap, and the big-selling Findhorn Killer IPA, named after one of most successful salmon flies used in the area’s peaty rivers.
“We’ll be resurrecting many of our beers, and I'm already developing some new ones too,” said Seb.
“Many of the new beers will be in direct response to the changing landscape of the drinks market. But importantly for our local economy we’ll be creating employment, which along with happy customers I find the most satisfying elements of business.”
Speyside Brewery is actively recruiting a head brewer and administration personnel, with more jobs to be created later in 2022 and in early 2023.
Directors of Urquhart Bros Ltd, the company behind the investment are Moray businesswoman Naidene Urquhart and restaurateur Katalin Urquhart. They said they were delighted to be part of the story that brings Speyside Brewery back into production.
