Take a local golf caddie and dram-lover; a man with a dream.
Add a characterful cluster of old farm buildings set amid sunlit barley fields and ruffle gently with sea breezes.
Introduce a prominent Fife family with impeccable whisky credentials then sprinkle generously with determination and the spirit of adventure…
The Wemyss family is delighted to be opening its
first single malt whisky distillery in the delightful
East Neuk of Fife from December 2014.
Situated on the Cambo Estate near the village of
Kingsbarns, the buildings at East Newhall Farm
are being carefully restored and converted into a
small distillery and visitor centre.
The original rooms will soon be open to welcome
visitors for distillery tours to see how single malt
Scotch whisky is made. A new whisky exhibition will
be available including the opportunity to go inside the
restored 18th century “doocot” which will hold the first
cask filled at Kingsbarns.
The visitor centre will offer a range of different tours
and tastings from the Wemyss Malts collection of
Scotch whiskies, Darnley's View Gin and Rimauresq
