Kingsbarns Distillery, Near St Andrews
While working as a golf caddie at neighbouring Kingsbarns Golf Links, it was Douglas Clement's vision that first inspired the idea for a distillery at Kingsbarns. His determined belief in the project and an unfettered passion for single malt whisky has been instrumental in bringing the dream to life. The Wemyss family owners have a longstanding passion for malt whisky and connections with the industry dating back to the turn of the 19th century and so along with Douglas’s vision the story of Kingsbarns Single Malt Scotch Whisky begins. Guided tours of the distillery and tasting sessions are available and are a great way to spend a golf-free day when staying in the St Andrew's area.
