SUMMER 2020 RE-OPENING OF LINDORES ABBEY DISTILLERY
The Distillery will be open for pre-booked Tours on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays at 1130 / 1300 and 1430. You can also pre-book cheese & charcuterie platters, picnic hampers or luxury seafood hampers.
The Courtyard bar will be open every Friday and Saturday (11am – 10pm), Sunday (11am – 4pm) for a pre-booked bar service, and if the weather is due to be a wee bit dreich we can make use of the Cloister, making sure the tables are at least two metres apart to keep you all warm and dry!
Small weddings, private dining events, and bespoke tours for groups of 8+ can be booked for any time, by arrangement.
We are still able to send out orders as we use couriers, so you can support us by buying Aqua Vitae, New Make Spirit, or our Memberships and of course Elliot our cask custodian will be on hand to chat to interested parties about 2020 whisky casks.
Welcome to Lindores Abbey Distillery
After a break of 523 years, spirit is once again flowing from the copper stills at Lindores Abbey.
With Lindores Abbey’s widely recognised links to the earliest written reference to Scotch Whisky and learning as much as we can from the great Scottish distillers around us, past and present, we are bringing a very modern whisky-making approach to this ancient site.
‘For the whisky lover, it is a pilgrimage.’ – Acclaimed whisky writer Michael Jackson

Aqua Vitae is an award winning handcrafted botanical spirit, made on site using spices, dried fruit and locally grown green herbs such as Douglas fir and sweet cicely.
With citrus notes and full of sweet and spiced flavours, Aqua Vitae is delicious as a mixed drink or a cocktail base.
The earliest Aqua Vitae was made at Lindores as long ago as 1494, and we’ve authentically recreated that recipe and reimagined it as an inquisitively versatile spirit.
