Daftmill Distillery is a new single malt Scotch whisky distillery, located in a converted barn at Daftmill Farm in Fife.

The distillery was granted a licence by HMRC in 2005 to produce whisky and the first whisky was produced on 16 December 2005, making Daftmill the newest distillery to open in Scotland at that time.[1]

Built in a converted meal mill and using un-peated malt, Daftmill has a maximum production capacity of only 20,000 litres of alcohol per year, making it a very low volume distillery.[2] So far no whisky has been bottled for sale.
