Kingsbarns Distillery and visitor centre

The Kingsbarns Distillery and the visitor centre opened its doors to the public on 1 December. Since then the centre has had visitors from the village and local businesses as well as (inter)national tourists interested in the whisky making process.

The distillery is situated in Kingsbarns in the Scottish Lowlands. It’s owned by the family Wemyss, known for their blended malts and single casks. Thanks to this new distillery they can add an own single malt to their product line.

In a few weeks they’ll start distilling at Kingsbarns, after the last checks on the equipment have been done. That way a new Kingsbarns whisky might be announced in January. This means we can expect the first Kingsbarns single malt around the beginning of 2018.

For those who can’t wait until then, the distillery together with the visitor centre, the shop and the bar are already open. Every day there are guided tours followed by a tasting of Wemyss malts. On the website you can also register for a more extended and specialised tour.
