A man with a dream
“I wanted to bring whisky to Fife where I was born, raised and love dearly”.
Doug was inspired to set up his own whisky distillery when, as a former professional golf caddie at Kingsbarns Golf Links, he had regular comments from his golfers to direct them to the nearest distillery. With nothing for 50 miles he knew that there was a real opportunity to create something special by the home of golf.
Searching for a site, the derelict East Newhall Farm on the Cambo Estate clearly stood out above all the rest in terms of the charm of the building and its location overlooking barley fields to Kingsbarns Golf Links and North Sea beyond.
Douglas needed a partner to make his whisky dream a reality which is why the Wemyss family joined the project, their experience in the whisky industry has been instrumental in turning Doug’s dream into a reality.
