Kingsbarns Distillery’s flagship single malt, Dream to Dram, has been announced as the ‘Best Scotch Lowlands Single Malt’ at the World Whiskies Awards 2020.

The light and floral expression is the first single malt to be distilled at the Fife distillery.

Under the direction and craftmanship of Kingsbarns Distillery manager, Peter Holroyd, Dream to Dram was launched and named in January 2019 after a vision from the local founders to bring whisky to the East Neuk of Fife.

Only one year on and the product has now been recognised as a leading player in the single malt category at the World Whiskies Awards which select the very best international styles to honour and promote to consumers and trade across the globe.

Peter Holroyd, distillery manager at Kingsbarns Distillery, said: “It is fitting that we have been recognised in this World Whiskies category for Dream to Dram because it is a bit of a dream for us all. We built the foundations of the distillery around our first flagship single malt with a vision to maximise the local environment and its ingredients and ultimately, reflect the serenity of the East Neuk. It feels fantastic to know this concept has paid off amongst the judges.”

Dream to Dram is slowly crafted with barley harvested from the sun-soaked golden fields of Fife and mixed with mineral water drawn from an aquifer 100 metres below ground level. This results in a light and clean yet complex Lowland-style malt, with a fruity flavour profile, that captures the spirit of the enchanting corner of Scotland where it is crafted.
