Although one of Scotland’s newest (and smallest) whisky distilleries, Fife-based Daftmill has a rich heritage in growing malting barley through six generations of the founding Cuthbert family, a history which lends itself well to Scotch whisky production.
Since 2005, they’ve used barley from their own crop and the natural spring water from nearby Daftmill itself to create an exciting number of single malt whisky releases. This fully self-sufficient distillery produces around 20,000 litres during two separate three month seasons, one being after the hectic spring period on the farm and the second during the winter period between late November and February.
There’s much hype around this enigmatic distillery and it’s methods, given its new status but traditional production style, there’s been a long, 13-year wait leading up to the release in 2018. Here at The Whisky World, you’re able to discover what all of the fuss is about, with a fine selection of Daftmill whiskies available for your choosing.
