The appreciation the Wemyss family have for the whisky industry led them to the realisation that, even for the knowledgeable consumer, much of the malt whisky terminology can be confusing.
We use the natural taste and aroma of the individual whiskies to identify each bottling, rather than placing the emphasis on the distillery.
Each cask that is chosen for bottling is representative of the best characteristics of its regional origins and only the best casks are chosen by our Nosing & Tasting Panel, which is chaired by Charlie Maclean. This strict selection process limits the number of casks which are of the exceptional quality required to be elevated into this range.
All our single cask bottling’s come in an individual gift carton, and are presented on a regional basis, reflecting the different taste profiles. Currently, there are five different malts in the range: Speyside, Highland, Islay, Lowland and Campbeltown.
All are bottled at a minimum of 46% but occasionally we come across casks of such quality that they dictate bottling at natural cask strength.
Whilst we wait for the Kingsbarns Single Malt whisky to mature, visitors can enjoy a tour and sample the existing Wemyss Malts stable including 5 exclusive single cask bottling’s that you can only find at the distillery.
