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 when John Haig (founder of Haig's) built his first distillery on Wemyss land. Even today barley from the Wemyss Estate is prized by many of the leading distillers, and Cameronbridge Distillery is located just a few miles from the castle itself. With this passion came the gradual realization that, even for the knowledgeable consumer, much of the malt whisky terminology can be confusing. Our range of handcrafted malts was conceived with the aim of making them more accessible and understandable. We use the taste and aromas of the individual whiskies to identify each bottling, rather than the distillery, so the consumer can more easily understand the style being purchased. Up to sixteen different single malt whiskies are expertly blended together before introducing the signature malts to create three distinct taste profiles under Charles Macleans guidance: 'Spicy' (Spice King), 'Peaty' (Peat Chimney) and 'Honeyed' (The Hive). The new 'Kiln Embers' is a smoky addition to the Wemyss line up, blended with double the amount of smoky Islay malt whisky than its sister whisky, Peat Chimney.


An invitation to explore some of Scotland’s finest distilleries, our Wemyss Single Cask expressions reflect unique moments in time. Exquisitely presented with vivid and beautifully descriptive names, this collection of exclusive releases should be cherished and savoured. “Hike to Haven” comes from Bunnahabhain Distillery, was distilled in 1990, and bottled in 2016. The scotch is a limited edition, and only 238 bottles were released.

Tasting Notes

A real journey in a glass. The nose has violet, lemon balm and grassy aromas. A rounded fruitiness on the palate with rose undertones and lingering notes of plums and citrus notes. The finish is earthy, savory, smooth and long, with different layers to enjoy.
