When you go to the website of Wemyss (pronounced as Weems) malts, you read the following:
The Wemyss family have had a longstanding passion for malt whisky and their connections with the industry date back to the turn of the 19th century when John Haig (founder of Haig’s) built his first distillery on Wemyss land.
And the passion they write about, you will find this in every whisky they release. And their range of hand crafted malts was conceived with the aim of making them more accessible and understandable.
An evening with good company, batch strength and in a limited edition, 6000 bottles each.
An exciting online whisky tasting with the Hive Batch Strength, Spice King Batch Strength and Peat Chimney Batch Strength bottlings, along with a special smoky old fashioned cocktail, Rob Roy.
We received the order to leave Rob Roy in the chill zone. I kept him next to the cheese and the salad. Rob Roy needed to wait until the sign and when that time came, Rob Roy also was free to pour himself into a glass.
Kingsbarns Distillery is delighted to announce that its Founders’ Club membership is now available to buy through an instalment plan.
The Visitor Centre was opened on St Andrews Day 2014 by the Wemyss family owners and the founder, local man Douglas Clement. Distilling started in January 2015, with the first cask filled in March that year.
As we gather to celebrate the longest day – midsummer, Independent bottler Wemyss Malts releases a gathering of nine new single cask whiskies ranging from 18 to 27 years old. As always the descriptive names of these whiskies are based on the flavours and aromas discovered by the Wemyss tasting panel.
Family-owned Wemyss Malts is delighted to announce the release of a new selection of single cask Scotch whiskies.
This mouth-watering collection of new whiskies is named after the unique natural taste and aroma of each one. The new offering includes cask strength “Kirsch Gateau” from Islay and a further single grain single cask.
The Kingsbarns Distillery and Visitor Centre officially opened its doors to the public on Monday 1 December. The first visitor was the aptly named Mr. New, who lives locally and has watched the build with interest over the past year and a half.
