The founders of Daftmill Distillery are brothers Francis and Ian Cuthbert, both sixth-generation farmers here in the beautiful Howe of Fife. The farm has been here for 1000 years, and the Cuthbert family reckon that they’re  only the third family to own it within that time. The farm has beef cattle, vegetable plots, and plenty of barley – most of which is regularly sold to the Edrington group for the likes of Macallan and Highland Park. It wasn’t until the new millennium that the idea of keeping some of the barley to make Daftmill’s own whisky became a viable commercial project. In 2003, the Cuthberts converted three of their buildings into a distillery and were granted their licence to distil in 2005. It was great timing, as the global rise in demand for whisky was about to cause the biggest industry boom in decades.

 

This 2008 vintage is a marriage of 7 first-fill bourbon casks bottled in 2019 at 46%, with just 1780 bottles available worldwide.
