About Wemyss Family Spirits
Brother and sister team; William and Isabella Wemyss, started their spirits journey in 2005 when they founded Wemyss Malts. William was inspired by his experience at the family’s French vineyard and with the family’s Scottish roots began exploring the blending of quality single malt whiskies. Whisky, new make spirit, oak casks and mature whisky are expertly sourced by William’s sister, Isabella, to produce superior, small-batch blended malt Scotch whiskies. The family spirits portfolio grew in 2010 with the addition of Darnley’s Gin. The name was inspired by Mary Queen of Scots meeting her future husband while staying at Wemyss Castle in 1565. Today Darnley’s is distilled in Fife and visits can be made to Darnley’s Distillery and Gin School. The final member of the spirits family is Kingsbarns Single Malt. Established in 2014, the small family distillery and visitor centre can be found near the Fife village of Kingsbarns. The single malt whisky is a light and delicate Lowlands single malt distilled using Fife barley, water from the aquifer beneath the distillery and 2 types of yeast. It is matured in the finest quality fresh oak barrels.
