Glen Spey belongs to the same family as the more familiar Knockando and The Singleton of Auchroisk, and the lesser-known Strathmill. All are owned by Justerini & Brooks, the "J & B" of blended whisky renown.

The Glen Spey distillery was founded in 1884 and acquired at a very early stage, in 1887 by Gilbey's. The distillery was completely rebuilt in 1970. Its whisky contributes to blends like Spey Royal and the vatted malt Stathspey but has in recent years also been marketed on a limited scale as a single malt.
