BackgroundDarnley's 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. The principal botanicals in our recipe are juniper, cinnamon and nutmeg. 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 Spiced Gin is made with a selection of carefully selected berries, seeds, peels and roots collectively known as botanicals.
