Darnley’s Gin began as a Wemyss family adventure, a brother and sister with a background in whisky and wine, were fascinated by the endless combination of botanicals you could use in gin making and the impact this could have on flavour.
They have since moved production to Scotland and more specifically to Kingsbarn Fife and the Wemyss family home and farm.
Darnley’s Gin is made in a traditional pot still using the London Dry method which has been around for centuries. They chose to make gin this way as it pulled on the heritage and skills of their master distiller and ultimately produces a gin with uncompromising quality and flavour.
Darnley’s Original is distilled from 6 botanicals including juniper, elderflower, coriander and lemon peel. Bottled at 40% ABV, this London Dry Gin has a long and dry finish, which makes for a refreshing G&T.
