Proof66 Notes

First launched in 2010, Darnley''s View gin is named for the historic moment in 1565 when Mary Queen of Scots saw her husband-to-be Lord Darnley through a window at Weymyss Castle. The Weymyss family (pronounced "weems") persevered through present day and manages a family of spirits and wines. It is made from what they claim is a family recipe of 6 botanicals: the requisite juniper, elderflower, angelica root, lemon zest, coriander, and orris root... all very classic and traditional gin flavors.

While the label claims "infused with citrus and elderflower" it does not appear to us that this is a flavored gin but rather a set of botanicals that are part of the gin profile. We have opted to list it as a traditional dry.

While the Wemyss Family owns and manages the label, and we guess for that reason that the gin is made from a base of barley, made at Castle Wemyss.

In their 2011 review, Wine Enthusiast called Darnley''s a "beautiful small-batch gin."
