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. Included in the tour is a tasting of three gins in the Darnley’s Gin range or if you are driving you get a ‘nip’ to take home with you.

Become a distiller for the day as you create your one-of-a-kind bottle of Scottish Gin. Under the guidance of our gin school team, you will learn about the art of distillation and what it takes to create a great tasting gin. To create your bespoke gin recipe, explore our botanical collection some of which are grown in our own cottage garden, and consult your gin school guide and flavour wheel to ensure you get the balance of flavours just right.
The hands-on experience continues as our team take you through the steps of distilling and you begin to make your one-of-a-kind gin on your own copper mini still. Enjoy a tour of Darnley's Distillery whilst sipping on a few refreshing G&T's and a tasting of the Darnley's Gin range. At the end of the experience, you will fill, label and name your unique creation to take home and enjoy in a branded Darnley's gift bag.
