Daftmill is a farm distillery, owned and run by the Cuthbert family, who grow all of the barley used in their whisky on-site. The distillery is only operational during the farm's quiet periods in mid-summer and mid-winter, sometimes producing as few as 100 casks per year. The distillery was granted its license in 2005, but not in a hurry to rush out their product, it was 2018 before their inaugural release. This patience and dedication to their craft has won the distillery an army of passionate fans, among collectors and connoisseurs alike.
The barley for this twenty-eight cask vatting was harvested from the farm's Dam Park and Curling Pond fields on 31st August 2004. This was some of the last barley to the malted in Fife by Robert Kilgour & Co before they closed. The whisky was filled into ex- bourbon casks in 2006, matured for 15 years and bottled in 2022 at cask strength.
