Our malty musings...



Published on: 24/01/19 by Justine

At last, at last; Daftmill has arrived and we’re delighted that the Daftmill team will be joining us for the 2019 Fife Whisky Festival.

As one of Scotland’s smallest distilleries, situated near Bow of Fife just outside Cupar, it is the closest distillery to our festival venue.

In 2003, two brothers, Francis and Ian Cuthbert, applied for planning permission to convert the old mill into a distillery and the first spirit came off the stills in December 2005. Last year saw the inaugural and summer releases of the much anticipated single malt from this Fife distillery and very well received they were too!

Amongst other activities, Daftmill Farm grows malting barley and about one hundred tons is kept for the distillery’s own use. Details of the barley appear on the reverse of the bottles avoiding any confusion; this is a Fife whisky through and through!

This fresh and fruity 12 year old single malt is delicious. However, don’t just take our word for it; head over to the Daftmill stand on 9th March and discover their whisky yourself.
