Divots & Drams

Scotland’s two great passions – golf and whisky – come together in an exclusive package currently available from the stunning five-star Fairmont St Andrews, the luxury resort at the Home of Golf.
The ‘Divots & Drams’ package, which is available from May until the end of September, offers a round of golf on either of the resort’s two famed championship courses – the Torrance and the Kittocks – and a tour of the nearby Kingsbarns Distillery, one of Scotland’s newest, with a visit to the exhibition therein and a tasting, with advice and assistance from a tour guide.
In addition, the deal, which costs from £199 per person (based on double occupancy), also includes overnight B&B accommodation and a three-course dinner – including a dram of the Wemyss whisky, one of the family-owned malts available at the distillery – in the resort’s newly refurbished clubhouse restaurant, which affords stunning views of the bay.
It was while working as a golf caddie that Douglas Clement was inspired to envisage a distillery at Kingsbarns. His determined belief in the project and an unfettered passion for single malt whisky has been instrumental in bringing the dream to life, a dream which now culminates in an award-winning portfolio of single-cask regional malts and blended whiskies from Wemyss Malts. And the ‘Divots & Drams’ package brings Clement full circle in linking his beloved golf and whisky once more.
