Win a Day at Darnley’s Distillery

To celebrate the launch of Smoke & Zest Gin, Darnley’s and The Scottish Gin Society have teamed up to bring you this exclusive competition for a chance to win a Day at Darnley’s Distillery!

The Gin

Smoke & Zest Gin is the second gin in the limited-edition Cottage Series range from Darnley’s and uses Fife-grown barley smoked over pinewood chips, rowanberry that grows around the Darnley’s distillery, coriander from their cottage garden, orange peel from Turkey and Lapsang Souchong tea from China. WOW! These wonderful botanicals combine to create an experimental gin that has a malty depth, is full of sweet citrus zest and develops a big smoky flavour.

The Prize

Join the team at Darnley’s Distillery & Gin School, just outside the village of Kingsbarns in the East Neuk of Fife. There, you will be welcomed by the team with coffee and cake before making your way to the gin cottage where you will have a ‘Distil Your Own Experience’ in their charming Gin School. 

Learn the art of distilling from one of the Darnley’s tutors, choose your botanical recipe and – while you wait for your gin to be ready – take a tour of the distillery and sample the Darnley’s Gin range. Finally, bottle, label and name your gin to take home. 

Lunch for two in their café will be followed by a one to one tasting of the new Darnley’s release, Smoke & Zest with Distiller Scott Gowans. Sip on our perfect serve overlooking the barley fields before being waved off with a Darnley’s goodie bag. 

Good luck! This is one amazing prize!


Entrants must be 18 or over, proof of age may be requested before the prize is issued.

The prize must be redeemed on a Friday, Saturday or Sunday subject to availability. 

The prize must be redeemed before 1st March 2020.
