Kingsbarns Distillery Welcomes Copper Pot Stills

The Kingsbarns Distillery and Visitor Centre, located in the East Neuk of Fife celebrated another momentous milestone as the copper pot whisky stills arrived at 09:00 this morning (Thursday 2 October).

The Wash Still, weighing three and a half tonnes and holding 7,500 litres and the Spirit Still, weighing three tonnes and holding 4,500 litres will both play an integral part in determining the light character of spirit produced at Kingsbarns Distillery.

Jim Murray Proclaims New Zealand Whisky One of the World’s Best

Oamaru, New Zealand– May 8, 2014 – He’s believed to have visited more whisky distilleries than anyone on earth and Jim Murray’s 2014 Whisky Bible
boasts over 4,500 whiskies. But few score 94 points or higher, receiving Murray’s highly sought ‘liquid gold’ status.

 In the latest edition, The New Zealand Whisky Company’s South Islan Single Malt 21 y.o. scored 95 points, placing it in the highly coveted category.
This is the first time ever that a New Zealand whisky has appeared in a category that has catapulted some distilleries, such as Amrut, from unknowns
to the world stage.
