Darnley's View launches new gin

04 July, 2012

Darnley’s View has launched a new London Dry gin spiced with a blend of juniper, cinnamon and nutmeg.

It is five times distilled and is bottled at the unusual strength of 42.7% "to best present the new combination of warming spice botanicals".

The original Darnley's View Gin was launched in 2010 with an emphasis on the botanicals of juniper, elderflower and citrus.

The new Darnley's View Spiced Gin was developed with a team of distillers and mixologists.

William Wemyss, managing director of Darnley’s View owner Wemyss Malts, said: "It will provide a unique, yet complementary addition to the Darnley's View range and bring a new dimension to the dynamic premium gin market.''

Darnley’s View is owner by he Wemyss family from Scotland, and the name celebrates the meeting of Mary Queen of Scots and her husband Lord Darnley at Wemyss Castle in 1565.
