Kingsbarns Falkland has been distilled from barley sourced less than six miles from the Kingsbarns Distillery. Our limited release single malt has enjoyed maturation in two types of casks, maintaining balance and developing complexity.
Production Director Isabella Wemyss has carefully selected a combination of Ex-Bourbon and STR (shaved, toasted and re-charred) ex-Portuguese red wine casks to mature Falkland. The spirit comprises of 80% first fill ex-Bourbon barrels and 20% STR red wine casks to add another dimension to the whisky. This is an interesting take on our usual distillery style by ramping up our STR influence. This introduces greater warming spice notes, red fruits and even some chocolatey notes into the equation.
The inspiration for Falkland is in our name. Kingsbarns derives from the barns in the local villages that stored the grain for the Royal Castle at Crail and the Palace at Falkland back in the 12th century, so it’s especially fitting to pay homage with Falkland Single Malt as it encapsulates our unique location and historical roots.
Full of sweet, fruity character, Falkland is redolent with berry sweetness and subtle warming spices.

Made with locally-grown barley and water from our own source, the foundation of our whisky is our new make spirit. Carefully distilled with a particularly long fermentation process and taken from a high cut point, the Kingsbarns spirit style is characterized by a light elegance, and fruity, floral notes. Mindful of balance, we pair the spirit with the wood, marrying it with hand-selected casks to enhance and complement our signature profile. Released in small-batch quantities, our limited editions are examples of our experimentation into new avenues of whisky.
