Wemyss is pronounced “Weems," the Scots word for caves, named after the caves on the rocky shore of Fife beside Wemyss Castle which is the historic family home of the Wemyss family portrayed on all the Wemyss whisky labels
The Wemyss family has a long association with whisky, as John Haig built his first distillery on Wemyss land at the turn of the 19th century. Barley from the Wemyss Estate is still used by many leading distillers.
Wemyss understands that much of the malt whisky terminology can be confusing – even for the knowledgeable consumer, so the range of Wemyss malts aims to be more accessible and understandable, by using the taste and aromas of individual whiskies to identify each bottling
Wemyss range of blended malts take you on a journey through the whisky making regions of Scotland. Rather than place the emphasis on the distillery, the whiskies are named after their natural tastes and aromas, acting as a tasting note for what you
might expect inside. These are non age statement whiskies, bottled at 46% abv and non chill filtered. The range is also available as a 12 year old expression.
