Kingsbarns 2 Year Old Spirit Drink, will give enthusiasts a taste of the distillery’s core essence, ahead of it reaching the minimal 3 Year Old age, in which it can be legally classed as Scotch whisky.

This latest release from the Fife based distillery, follows on its first Spirit Drink release in 2015, which was bottled straight from the still without being aged in oak barrels.

The Wemyss family owned distillery, is aiming to bottle the very first Kingsbarns single malt Scotch whisky, as a ‘Founders’ Reserve’ exclusively for the members of its Founders’ Club in 2018.

Commenting on the launch, Peter Holroyd, Kingsbarns Distillery Manager, said: “We are delighted to announce the limited release of our 2yr old spirit which can be purchased exclusively here at the distillery. It has a sweet, floral nose and on the palate I get ginger biscuits with a slightly dry finish. Its very exciting to see how our spirit is progressing so far, and with only one more year to go until we can call what we produce Scotch whisky, the team here at Kingsbarns are all looking forward to releasing our first malt in 2018.”

Kingsbarns 2 Year Old Spirit Drink, will be available exclusivley from the distillery’s visitor centre early net month. RRP (tbc).
