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

The distillery was granted a licence by HMRC in 2005 to produce whisky and the first whisky was produced on 16 December 2005.[1][2]

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.[3] Their first release was introduced as Daftmill 2005 12–Year Inaugural Release. All the grain used in distillation is produced on the farm.[4][5]
