Whisky

Whisky is one of the things Scotland is famous for. If you have never tried it do it here.


Mostly Scottish whiskies are divided by six regions:
Speyside

Lowlands

Highlands
Islands
Campeltown
Islay

Lowland and Speyside whiskies are usually quite smooth the further north you go the smokier the palette will become and westwards you get ‘peatiness’, especially on Islay. Islay being an island of only 25 miles length but with eight whisky distilleries: true whisky lovers heaven!

We have divided our whisky tours by whisky region and added on a Fife Tour due to the fact that Starfish Travel is based in St Andrews, Fife- the Kingdom of Fife to be precise.

 

Fife traditionally had a high number of distilleries, most of them did not survive. Currently, there are a number of new distilleries, some of which I would like to specially name:

Daftmill Distillery close to Cupar, founded by two farming brothers and so exquisite that so far it has been almost impossible to buy their first proper Whisky.

Lindores Distillery only started whisky production in 2017 but after a break of 523 years. The first record of distilling was in 1494!!!

 

There is also Kingsbarns Distillery founded in 2014 and now owned by the Wemyss family but brain child of of a local caddie Douglas Clement. The Wemyss also moved the production of their famous “Darnley’s View” gin from London to Kingsbarns. The name referring to the second husband of Queen Mary of the Scots. She allegedly laid eyes on him for the first time at the family’s home in Wemyss.

  3. In the grand scheme of things you’ll receive a B- for hard work. Where exactly you lost me personally was in all the facts. As as the maxim goes, the devil is in the details… And that couldn’t be much more correct in this article. Having said that, let me inform you just what exactly did deliver the results. Your authoring can be incredibly powerful which is most likely the reason why I am taking the effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Next, although I can certainly see a leaps in reasoning you make, I am not really sure of just how you seem to connect the points that make the actual conclusion. For the moment I will, no doubt yield to your issue but wish in the future you connect the facts better.
