Aqua Vitae, an award winning handcrafted botanical spirit, is 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.
Today, our Aqua Vitae is distilled in pot stills and then infused with a blend of spices and herbs, including cleavers, and sweet cicely, which grow in our gardens, amidst the grounds of the ancient Abbey. It is entirely natural, with no added sugars.
Initial light top notes of peach and pear, give way to hints of ginger, clove and cinnamon spice. Rich, caramel sweetness and some lovely light herbal notes on the finish. Complex and rewarding.
HOW TO DRINK AQUA VITAE
We recommend drinking Aqua Vitae in a Highball glass filled with ice, pour over 50ml of Aqua Vitae topped with Ginger Ale, and garnish with a twist of Orange.
Another way to enjoy Aqua Vitae is to simply pour over ice with a twist of orange.
Aqua Vitae is delicious as a mixed drink or a cocktail base and we have an ever growing list of drinks recipes that are being added to by many of our friends and partners in the drinks industry that you can look at and re create HERE.BUY AQUA VITAE
International Wine and Spirits Competition – IWSC
In 2019 we were delighted to receive a Silver Medal in the Fruit Spirit category at the International Wine and Spirit Competition – IWSC. The judges commented that our Aqua Vitae is a great composition of flavours, with the lemon verbena keeping the dried-fruit-like raisin and date aromas and the taste balanced and fresh – a nice blend of flavours and textures, with an exciting harmony of flavours and a delicious finish.
Great Taste Awards
We were also awarded a 2 Star Outstanding Award at the Great Taste Awards 2019 by the Guild of Fine Food – the acknowledged benchmark for fine food and drink. It has been described as the ‘Oscars’ of the food world and the ‘epicurean equivalent of the Booker prize’. Quite simply the Great Taste logo is the sign you can trust when buying food and drink in your local, quality retailer.
