Planet Grape 91
"The Wemyss family crafts small batches of this delicate, dry Gin. It is balanced and elegant and has notes of lemon leaf, elderflower, juniper and coriander."
Darnley’s View is made with six carefully selected berries, seeds, peels, roots and flowers known collectively as the botanicals. The principal botanicals in our family recipe are Juniper, Lemon Peel, Elderflower, Coriander Seed, Angelica Root and Orris Root.
Aroma: Clean, fresh and vibrant with the aromas of juniper being very distinctive.
Taste: Juniper coming through strongly, sharp citrus and mellow spice with laid back floral notes.
Finish: Long and dry, with a twist of floral and fruit characters from the elderflower. ANALYSIS

Our family name, pronounced 'Weems', comes from the Gaelic word for caves which stems from the rocky outcrop on the Firth of Forth on which our family home, Wemyss Castle, sits. Looking back towards Edinburgh, the castle has been the family seat for over six centuries. With renowned expertise for the production of fine wines and whisky, it was a natural step for us to make a range of gins and Darnley's View began! We worked with 11th generation master distiller Charles Maxwell and gin expert and author Geraldine Coates to create recipes for two beautifully balanced gins, Original and Spiced.
