We are delighted to announce that bottles of Kingsbarns Distillery New Make Spirit are now for sale at the Visitor Centre and on our online shop. 

Distilling started in January 2015 and Distllery Manager, Peter Holroyd, and his team are so delighted with the quality of the spirit being produced that it was decided to bottle some for all to try as well as filling it into casks. 

Scotch Whisky has to mature for at least 3 years and a day in oak casks and so the launch of the new make spirit will give visitors and curious whisky drinkers a unique chance to sample the unmatured spirit. The New Spirit Drink is bottled at 63.5%, the same strength at which the casks are filled and available for sale in 20cl bottles priced at £14.95.  

Peter commented on the new bottling: "It's a great pleasure to share our new spirit with visitors.  The spirit itself is an elegant, fruity and floral spirit and I can't wait to see how it is going to develop into Scotch whisky over the coming years.  I recommend that water is added to enjoy the fruity flavours at their best."

Tours of the distillery will now include a taste of the new make spirt and can be arranged by contacting: +44(0)1333 451300 or booking here on the website.
