A family with a Dream

The Scottish Wemyss family have had a longstanding passion for malt whisky and their connections with the industry date back to the turn of the 19th century when John Haig (founder of Haig's) built his first distillery on Wemyss land.

The dream

Old farm buildings and barley fields

The story of Kingsbarns Single Malt Scotch Whisky begins with the conversion of a historic and semi-derelict farm steading into a distillery. For more than three years we worked closely with architects, engineers, designers, and leading whisky specialists as our vision slowly took shape.

The Spirit of Adventure

Our copper pot stills were hand-made at Forsyths in Rothes, Speyside, both the Wash Still and the Spirit Still will play an integral part in determining the light character of spirit produced at Kingsbarns Distillery. Our new make spirit has been bottled giving visitors and curious whisky drinkers a unique chance to sample the spirit before it matures.
