FAMILY-owned Fife distillery Kingsbarns has unveiled a new whisky – Balcomie.
Named after local landmark Balcomie Castle, the new dram pays homage to the distillery’s heritage and surroundings. The whisky is the first of a planned series of whiskies named after celebrated sites in Fife.
The 46% ABV dram is matured in 100% ex-Oloroso American Oak Sherry Butts, with tasting notes describing it as offering flavours of sweet tinned pineapple, orange peel, cake spice, dried apricot and a hint of roasted hazelnut.
William Wemyss, founder and managing director of Kingsbarns Distillery said: “The new addition to our range allows whisky lovers to enjoy fruity and indulgent flavours from an original bottle designed to honour our Scottish heritage. The Balcomie is perfect for cold, autumnal evenings and is guaranteed to take whisky fans on a stunning flavour journey.”
