The Fife based Kingsbarns Distillery, has today announced the launch of a new flagship whisky.

This latest bottling, which is their first global release, pays tribute to one of the most striking architectural features at the Kingsbarns Distillery - a free-standing structure with Adam-style crenellations and Gothic detailing.

Kingsbarns Doocot, which follows on from their multi award-winning Dream to Dram bottling, has been produced using barley sourced less than six miles from the distillery.

Commenting on the launch, William Wemyss, Founder and Managing Director of Kingsbarns Distillery, said: “Doocot has been years in the making. We’ve spent a lot of time perfecting the distilling process to make sure we’ve crafted the perfect finish. We’re so proud of the end result that Doocot now stands as our flagship whisky, taking over the mantle from Dream to Dram.”

He went onto say: “The new addition to our range allows whisky lovers to enjoy the same fruity and indulgent flavours that they’re used to but with an added level of balance and complexity. As we transition into the warmer months, Doocot is the perfect refreshing, fruity dram that is guaranteed to take whisky fans on a stunning flavour journey – we hope customers love it as much as we do.”

Kingsbarns Doocot, is now available from specialist retailers, for a RRP of £45.00.
