Whisky Tasting at Kingsbarns Distillery, Fife, Scotland

This evening, I am posting information on one of Scotland’s youngest distilleries, Kingsbarns. This is located on the Fife Coast about eight miles S.E. of the historic city of¬†St. Andrews and close to Kingsbarns Golf Links.

The distillery was opened in 2014 as a subsidiary of  independent bottler,Wemyss Malts with financial support from the Scottish Government.

Capacity is modest at 600,000 litres per annum.

Other facts and information:

  • Built on site of a dilapidated farmhouse.
  • Equipped with 1.5 ton mash tun, four 8,000 litre washbacks, one 7,500 litre wash still and one 4,500 litre spirit still.
  • Only locally produced barley will be used for malting.
  • Whisky will be Lowland style.
  • Location well suited for visitors to nearby St Andrews and golfing participants.
  • A range of distillery tours are available.
