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 producer's note the botanical break down as follows:
"Juniper- In our gin the distinctive pine, lavender camphor-like flavour of the juniper berry is the keynote around which all the other botanicals are built. We select the most aromatic, oil rich berries which grow in Southern Europe. Lemon Peel - Lemon peel dried in the Spanish sunshine adds a fresh crisp bite. Elderflower- Elder trees grow freely on our Scottish estate. The delicate fruity flavours of elderflower are not only a reminder of our Scottish heritage, they also add an extra special floral dimension to our 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 our gin dry. Orris Root - We source our orris from the Benelux countries and its aromatic fragrant notes contribute earthy complex flavours and hints of Parma Violet."
Tasting note: Light, fresh and elegant on the nose with understated liquorice notes amid dried juniper and faint citrus peel. A delicate entry leads into a light to medium bodied juniper / coriander and subtle anise profile. Concludes lean, dry and almost neutral like vodka. A well made alternative to robustly styled gins. 40% Alc./Vol.
