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