The Wemyss family has had a longstanding passion for malt whisky and their connections with the industry date back to the turn of the 19th century. In December 2014, Wemyss (pronouced Weemz) took their passion to new heights by opening Kingsbarns Distillery and Visitor Centre in East Neuk of Fife, Scotland, overlooking the world-renowned Kingsbarns Championship Gold Course.
Turn of the 19th Century
Wemyss uses the taste and aromas of the indivudal whiskies to identify each bottling, rather than the distillery, so the consumer can more easily understand the style being purchased. To do this Wemyss utilizes a "Nosing Panel" chaired by industry veteran and aficionado, Charlie Maclean, author of no less than eight books on the subject.
The range of scotch whiskies includes a line of Blended Malts as well as several Single Malt-Single Cask bottlings. All of the Single Malt-Single Casks are non-chill-filtered, free of artificial coloring, bottled at 46% ABV, and limited to 200-500 bottles per cask.
All our single cask bottlings are presented on a regional basis, reflecting the different taste profiles.
