About Darnleys Distillery and Gin School
The distillery is now open for tours. Situated in a small cottage behind Kingsbarns Whisky Distillery, your guide will explain the story of Darnley's Gin, how we distill our spirit and of course, lead you in a tasting.
Join us in the Darnley’s Gin cottage for a guided tasting, talk and tour. During each session, before you taste a selection of three gins, you’ll learn about the Darnley’s story, meet ‘Dorothy’ our 350 litre copper still and hear all about the history of gin and the botanicals we select to make our award-winning spirit.
