Darnley's View - London Dry Gin / Original / 700mL

Darnley's View London Dry Gin / Original / 700mL

Darnley's View Gin is made with six carefully selected berries, seeds, peels, roots and flowers known collectively as the botanicals.

The principal botanicals in the family recipe are juniper, lemon peel and elderflower and is bottled at 40% ABV to accentuate the floral, citrus notes.

Scotland, 1565. Mary Queen of Scots first spies her future husband, Lord Darnley through the courtyard window of Wemyss Castle, the historic family seat of renowned vintners and spirits merchants, the Wemyss family (pronounced 'weems').

Today, in recognition of this defining moment, they bring you the superbly balanced, hand crafted Darnley's View Gin.

The family name of Wemyss comes from the Gaelic word for caves which stems from the rocky outcrop on the Firth of Forth on which their family home, Wemyss Castle, sits. Looking back towards Edinburgh, the castle has been the family seat for over six centuries.

Darnley’s View is the family's latest brainchild.

With renowned expertise for the production of fine wines and spirits, Darnley's View Gin is made from a family recipe and captures the moment in 1565 when Mary Queen of Scots spied her future husband, Lord Darnley, through the courtyard window at Wemyss Castle.

From this marriage came a prince who later united the thrones of England and Scotland as James VI and Ist. The family likes to think of Darnley’s son, conceived through a union that began at Wemyss, as a symbol of our desire to combine the best of England and Scottish distilling to create a unique gin.

Darnley’s View Gin is made with six carefully selected berries, seeds, peels, roots and flowers known collectively as the botanicals.

The principal botanicals in the family recipe are juniper, lemon peel and elderflower and is bottled at 40% ABV to accentuate the floral, citrus notes.

Juniper
A distinctive pine, lavender camphor-like flavour of the juniper berry is the keynote around which all the other botanicals are built. Darnley's is selected with the most aromatic, oil rich berries grown in Southern Europe.

Lemon Peel
Lemon peel dried in the Spanish sunshine adds a fresh crisp bite.

Elderflower
Elder trees grow freely on the Wemyss Scottish estate. The delicate fruity flavours of elderflower are not only a reminder of the Wemyss Family Scottish heritage, but also add an extra special floral dimension to the gin.

Coriander Seed
Coriander seed from Morocco contributes warm, gingery, sage like flavours and a soft spiciness.

Angelica Root
The woody notes of dried angelica root from France helps to make Darnley's View Gin dry.

Orris Root
Sourced from their own orris from the Benelux countries, its aromatic fragrant notes contribute earthy complex flavours and hints of Parma Violet.
