Kingsbarns bottles new make spirit

Kingsbarns Distillery has bottled its new make spirit, which is now on sale at the visitor centre.

The visitor centre opened on St Andrews Day 2014 and distilling started in January 2015. The distillery manager Peter Holroyd and his team are so delighted with the quality of the spirit being produced it was decided to bottle the spirit for all to try and now tours of the distillery include a taste of the new make spirit.

The spirit is bottled at 63.5%, the same strength at which the casks are filled and available for sale in 20cl bottles priced at £14.95.

Holroyd comments: "It's a great pleasure to share our new spirit with visitors. The spirit itself is an elegant, fruity and floral spirit and I can't wait to see how it is going to develop into Scotch whisky over the coming years. I recommend that water is added to enjoy the fruity flavours at their best."
