Our distillery tours

We have 3 types of whisky tours suitable for all levels of whisky interest.

We are also able to offer 2 exciting tours at Darnley's Gin Distillery.

You can either book online or by phone, or just turn up. Each whisky tour will start in our exhibition, uncovering the history of the name Kingsbarns and by watching our film which explores the local area in the context of the whisky year. See the story of our renovation of the East Newhall Farm steading unfold before stepping in to the Doocot where our first cask of Kingsbarns spirit is resting. Your guide will explain our distillation methods inside the distillery before a dram or two in one of our tasting rooms (The Neuk and The Wemyss Room).

Darnley's Gin Tours take place in the newly refurbished Darnley's Distillery on the same site as Kingsbarns Distillery and Visitor Centre.
