Berry Bros & Rudd adds Daftmill to its portfolio

Berry Bros. & Rudd has announced a new global distribution agreement with Daftmill, one of Scotland’s first new wave distilleries. Named after the Daft stream which, thanks to the local topography, appears to run uphill. Daftmill is owned by Francis and Ian Cuthbert who in 2002 were granted permission to convert the old mill on the family farm,  which is located in Fife, into a distillery. The first spirit was produced in December 2005. Lizzy Rudd, Berry Bros. & Rudd’s new Chairman commented,“As a family business, Berry Bros. & Rudd naturally sees an affinity with other family-owned companies. The Cuthbert family, who own Daftmill, have been growing malting barley in the Howe of Fife for six generations.”

Daftmill is one of only two distilleries that can use the term ‘single estate’ and the only one that can be referred to as a ‘single estate farm distillery’.
