DescriptionDarnleys View Gin is a product of a family recipe and captures the moment in 1565 when Mary Queen of Scots spied her future husband, Lord Darnley, through the courtyard window at Wemyss Castle. From this marriage came a prince who later united the thrones of England and Scotland as James VI and Ist. We like to think of Darnleys son, conceived through a union that began at Wemyss, as a symbol of our desire to combine the best of England and Scottish distilling to create a unique gin. Why London and not Scotland given our Scottish heritage? Simple. Because we want to create a completely authentic gin in gins historic home; one which would appeal to those who appreciate the history and provenance of this iconic white spirit.
VinificationDarnley’s View is made with six carefully selected berries, seeds, peels, roots and flowers known collectively as the botanicals.
