We are officially launching our Preservation Society today with a symbolic first planting of a tree in our historic orchards and the unveiling of a unique whisky ballot for members to win one of the first casks to be filled this year at the distillery.
The 1494 members of The Preservation Society, who can join with a £500 donation, will be entered into this launch ballot for a 200L ex-Woodford Reserve bourbon barrel, which will be filled with Lindores Abbey spirit in its first year of production (2017). The unique cask will be bottled for the lucky winner at a date of their choosing, once the spirit is at least three years and day old. As part of the launch ballot, the cask duty will also be paid, taking the value of the launch prize to in excess of £7,000.
‘The 1494’ members will also have a tree planted in the new orchards in their name (which they are very welcome to come and plant with prior arrangement); they will receive a bottle a bottle from the first Limited Edition bottling of Lindores Abbey Aqua Vitae (50cl, 40% ABV); a bottle (1 of only 1494) from the first distillery bottling of Lindores Abbey Single Malt Whisky (70cl, 40%+ ABV); first offer on any other Limited Edition bottlings and rights to own their bottle number each time; a welcome pack with wooden membership card entitling free entry at the distillery and visitor centre for the member and their guest in the year of joining; an annual invitation to the Lindores Abbey ‘Bear Burning’ Ceremony and party for the member and their guest; as well as discounts at the visitor centre, online shop and also on venue hire.
Memberships are limited to the first 1494 people to join.
