NEW FLAGSHIP RELEASE: KINGSBARNS DOOCOT
Inspiration for the name of our new Single Malt came from the heart of our distillery at Kingsbarns. During the renovations of the old farmstead that began in 2013, efforts were made to restore, not replace, many parts of the historic building. One of these was its oldest space: The Doocot.
Scottish for Dovecot, the Doocot sits at the centre of our Fife distillery and holds our first fill cask from March 2015. As a space that once acted as home for doves and pigeons, it has now transitioned to a home for our story, but with its history still very much intact. Purchase a bottle today and become a part of that story.
Full of sweet, fruity character, DOOCOT is light, intensely fruity, floral and complemented by a rich colour coming from the high quality casks it has matured in. Our new flagship single malt has enjoyed a longer maturation in cask, maintaining balance and developing complexity.
