The Wemyss Family — producers of Wemyss Malts Scotch Whiskies and Darnley’s View Original London Dry Gin — have announced the expansion of their small-batch gin range with Darnley’s View Spiced Gin.
Darnley’s View Spiced Gin is distilled with ten botanicals, the principals being juniper, cinnamon and nutmeg. The gin is bottled at 42.7% proof to best present the combination of warming spice botanicals, the company says.
Like Darnley’s View Original, Darnley’s View Spiced is made in the London Dry style. No flavors are added after distillation.
The new gin was developed in conjunction with a team of gin experts including distillers, notable mixologists and leading gin writer, Geraldine Coates, the company says. “The new Darnley’s View Spiced Gin is really different to anything I’ve tasted recently and an excellent innovation,” Coates says in a press release.
The Wemyss family enjoys a long history as distillers, dating back to the 19th century in Scotland, the company says. The name “Darnley’s View” celebrates the meeting of Mary Queen of Scots and her husband Lord Darnley at the family seat of Wemyss Castle in 1565.
Darnley’s View Spiced Gin will be available in 10 markets beginning September 1, 2015 with an suggested retail price of $36.99.
