The Speyside Cooperage lies in the heart of the Speyside Malt Whisky Trail, it is the only working cooperage in the UK where you can experience the ancient art of coopering.

Since 1947, Speyside Cooperage has produced the finest casks from American Oak. In 2008 the Cooperage was sold to the French firm Tonnellerie François Frères.

Today the cooperage continues to produce the age-old product, using traditional methods and tools. Each year, it produces and maintains 150,000 oak casks used by the surrounding Speyside Whisky distilleries, as well as distilleries throughout Scotland and the rest of the world.

The Cooperage is the only cooperage in Britain with a visitor centre, enjoy a journey through the lifecycle of the cask, see the highly skilled coopers at work, try it for yourself with the mini casks or simply relax and enjoy the gift and coffee shop.
