Darnley’s View Spiced Gin set for US launchBy Melita Kiely
Wemyss Malts is preparing to launch its “pioneering” Darnley’s View Spiced Gin expression in the US on 1 September.
The spiced gin will be imported by Palm Bay International after Wemyss Malts signed a new import agreement with the firm in the US last December.
Darnley’s View Spiced Gin is distilled with 10 botanicals, with juniper, cinnamon and nutmeg all featuring prominently.
The new release was crafted in association with a group of “gin experts”, including distillers, bartenders and leading gin writer, Geraldine Coates.
Coates said: “The new Darnley’s View Spiced Gin is really different to anything I’ve tasted and an excellent innovation.”
The name Darnley’s View derives from 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 is bottled at 42.7% abv and will be launched in 10 US markets for an RRP of US$36.99.
Darnley’s View Gin underwent a label redesign last year to cement the “family look” of the brand.
