It all started with a dream of a dram.

Kingsbarns Distillery opened three months ago and is going from strength to strength. Founder Douglas Clement was inspired by the vision of a distillery based in Fife, while caddying professionally at the Kingsbarns Golf Links he saw a gap in the market for a distillers to be located near to the Kingsbarns golf course, as he was sending his clients almost 50 miles away out of Fife to the nearest distillery.

The Wemyss family joined Doug’s vision making his dream a reality. The first dram of Kingsbarns Single Malt is set to be ready in 2018, the team are currently making 24 casks per week and offering three tours for all levels of whisky interest from viewing the distillery to a tasting experience. The Kingsbarns Distillery also has a shop and café.

"We have had great support from Fife Council and the Invest in Fife team over the last couple of years and we look forward to working with them closely in the years to come." Douglas Clement, Founding Director & Visitor Centre Manager.
