Darnley’s Gin began as a Wemyss family adventure, a brother and sister with a background in whisky and wine, fascinated by the endless combination of botanicals you could use in gin making and the impact this could have on flavour. In 2018, production was moved to Scotland and more specifically to Kingsbarns Fife and the Wemyss family home and farm, which is situated in the picturesque East Neuk of Fife. Darnley’s Distillery is housed in a charming cottage overlooking Kingsbarns golf course and the North Sea beyond.

London Dry Gin

London Dry Gin is both a flavour profile and a production method. London Dry Gins tend to follow the traditional, classic flavour of piney juniper, citrus and spice. Alongside juniper, botanicals in London Dry Gin often include orris root, angelica root, cassia bark, citrus peel and coriander, among the core botanicals. The result is a dry gin that features piney juniper along with bursts of citrus and warming spice and earthy, dry notes from use of botanicals such as cassia bark and coriander. Nothing synthetic can be added like flavourings or colours and nothing can be added post distillation apart from water and a tiny amount of sugar meaning all flavours come from distillation.


The site at Kingsbarns is home to both the Kingsbarn’s Distillery the Darnley's Gin Distillery. The Kingsbarn’s Distillery, where the whisky is distilled, is in the renovated remains of the former coach house and also features a visitors centre, a fascinating tour of the distillery and exhibition about the history of the site, shop and cafe. Darnley's Gin Distillery is housed in the gin cottage, a 19th century Scottish cottage that's been repurposed to house both the gin distillery and gin school.
