Darnley’s Original Gin (70 cl)


ABV: 40%

Location: Kingsbarns, St Andrews

Darnley’s Original Gin has been 4 times distilled and is made with traditional botanicals including juniper, elderflower and lemon peel.

The handcrafted gin is made using the London Dry method which means that no flavours are added after distillation.

The Darnley’s name comes from the moment in 1565 that Mary Queen of Scots first spies her future husband, Lord Darnley, through the courtyard window of Weymss Castle.

Tasting Notes

Darnley’s Original GIn is made with six carefully selected botanicals including juniper, lemon peel and elderflower. The gin is well rounded, smooth and has floral, citrus notes with a warm finish.

The perfect serve

Great when used to make a classic G&T or in a fruit-based cocktail.
