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.
Aqua Vitae is available in 70cl, 20cl (which can be personalised) and 5cl miniature bottles which will allow you to try our Lindores spirit before you purchase a bottle.
