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!
Contact us for information about small weddings.
We are still able to send out orders, 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.
