Launched in 2010, Darnley’s View is a creation from the Wemyss Whisky Company in Fife. The name celebrates the moment in 1565 when Mary Queen of Scots spied her future husband, Lord Darnley, at the family’s home, Wemyss Castle in Fife, Scotland. The spiced version of Darnley's Gin employs a selection of carefully selected berries, seeds, peels and roots however, the principal botanicals in this recipe are juniper, cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger. Bottled at 42.7% to best enhance the warming spices. Tasting note: Crystal clear. More intense on the nose than its London Dry counterpart, this presents gently spiced scents of juniper, turmeric, coriander seed and muted cinnamon. Light on entry, developing good concentration by mid palate offering an attractive medley of spices amid the juniper and carrying through to the finish. Some unusual textural qualities combine in this pleasant though subtly spiced rendition. 42.7% Alc./Vol.
