The Kingdom of Fife is a very special and beautiful region, whether you love landscapes, golf or any kind of alcoholic drink. In the old days there were quite a number of small whisky distilleries (Stratheden Auchtermuchty Distillery & Pitlessie) which over the centuries disappeared.
Today, most Fife distilleries are relatively new:
For whisky tasting that may leave a lot to desire. To be called whisky, the exquisite liquid needs to be stored in a cask for three years and one day. To be any good you are looking for 10 years of age. Daftmill has reached this requirement but is already so sought after that getting your hands onto it is quite some task. Daftmill distillery is a fully operational farm and does not have a visitor centre. Tours are available but have to be booked well in advance. We definitely recommend this for serious whisky lovers.
Kingsbarns, Edenmill, and Lindores all provide interesting distillery tours and for the very exquisite taste you will simply have to wait for a while.
Meanwhile, we strongly recommend a visit at Keys Bar. This place is magic, because at has more than 300 whiskies on the tap, but it is everything but posh. Quite the opposite, located in the centre of privileged St Andrews it still is the local watering hole. Also, it has the most knowledgeable bar staff, who even visit the bar on their days off. Do visit and definitely talk to the people inside, it will at least become a lasting memory of true Scotland!
