Distillery Tour & Tasting for 2 - at Lindores Abbey Distillery
- Browse Vouchers
Distilling was taking place at Lindores Abbey as early as 1494 and it is known in Scotch whisky circles as the Spiritual Home of Scotch whisky through its connection to a certain Friar John Cor, who in 1494 was commissioned by King James IV to turn 8 bolls of malt into Aqua Vitae (whisky as we now know it).
In 2017, spirit started flowing once again from copper stills at Lindores Abbey and they love it when people make the pilgrimage to the Kingdom of Fife to visit the abbey and distillery. They are proud of our Cloister exhibition which tells the story of the Tironensian monks and the skills and education that they brought to Newburgh and Fife.
Guest can enjoy exploring the picturesque ruins of Lindores Abbey, browsing in our gift shop, viewing our art gallery, enjoying cocktails and afternoon teas in the fabulous Legacy Bar and BBQ’s in our courtyard; however it is the spirit that is running through the stills that really interests the guests, they are a whisky distillery after all.
Tours operate daily to allow a chance to get behind the scenes with one of the knowledgeable tour guides, each of whom brings their personal touch to a tour. These tours conclude with the chance to taste our delicious new Aqua Vitae, the versatile new spirit they are making whilst we wait patiently for our whisky to mature.
