Our Gin
Original Gin

 

Our recipe for Darnley’s Original was inspired by elderflower growing wild around the Wemyss family estate in Scotland. After picking copious amounts to dry out and then test in the stills, we knew we wanted to create a light, floral, citrus flavoured gin in the London Dry Style which honours our distillers past.

 

 

TASTING NOTES

Nose: Pine needles, juniper, elderflower, cloudy lemonade, floral notes

Palate: Grapefruit, juniper followed by a mellow spice

Finish: Long and dry, with a twist of floral and fruit characters from the elderflower.

Spiced Gin

 

Honouring the Wemyss family’s spirit of adventure, we wanted to explore a range of warming botanicals found as far afield as Africa, Morocco and China. We selected ten that would give the desired depth of flavour to create a contemporary gin that is full and rounded.

 

TASTING NOTES

Nose: Orange, pine needles, rosemary, cinnamon, coriander, peppercorns and clove

Palate: Mixed spices, ginger, freshly ground pepper followed by a hint of orange zest

Finish: Coriander, cardamon, sage, and a dry lingering peppery finish.

Spiced Gin - Navy Strength Edition -

 

Our Navy Strength edition of our award-winning Spiced Gin was inspired by the illustrious Royal Navy career of our ancestor Sir Rosslyn Wemyss, who commanded ships around the world and rose to the rank of Admiral of the Fleet. During his time at sea, ships’ officers still enjoyed a daily ration of gin which had to pass a gunpowder test to prove it was over 57% alcohol and therefore Navy Strength.

Using the same botanicals as Darnley’s Spiced Gin, we have added more juniper to our recipe and increased the proof to bring you a bold Navy Strength gin with intense warming spice flavour.

 

TASTING NOTES

Nose: Clementine, nutmeg, spruce, cinnamon, freshly grated black pepper

Palate: Ginger, citrus with a sweet and fresh character

Nose: Ginger, cinnamon, rich fruit, milled pepper and orange rind mixes well with the spice.
