Visit Us

Due to new guidance issued by the Scottish Government that moves Fife into Tier 3 COVID-19 restrictions, Lindores Abbey Distillery will be closed to the public until further notice starting Friday 13th November. Thanks to all who visited us in the months we reopened. We hope to welcome you back to the Distillery as soon as we’re able!

We are still able to send out orders, so you can support us by buying Aqua VitaeNew 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.


Orders from outside of the UK

FROM 1ST JAN 2021: Orders placed from outside of the UK, including all of Europe and EAA are subject to taxes and duty on arrival at the destination country. The delivery price quoted on our site does not include these charges. Lindores Abbey does not control import duty charges nor are we liable to pay any of these charges. Please check if these apply before ordering.

Unfortunately, currently we are unable to send bottles to the USA, Canada, Russia, Sweden, France or Poland. We are hoping to appoint distributors soon, after which we will be delighted to ship Lindores ‘Aqua Vitae’ to whisky lovers across the world. Please contact us so we can arrange an alternative way of getting your order to you.

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.

Aqua Vitae

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.
