Our  whisky and champagne afternoon teas are served in the atmospheric surroundings of the Legacy Bar, with its glorious views of Lindores Abbey and the river Tay beyond. Delicious treats include  finger sandwiches, savoury pastries, scones with cream and jam, delicate small cakes and a choice of fragrant teas.  A crisp, chilled glass of Champagne or a generous dram accompanies this feast, topped off by a stroll around the historic Abbey ruins to help to walk off the calories.

We offer five different options of dining area for a variety of events. The Cloister forms one of the most beautiful parts of the Visitor Centre, with its graceful curved roof juxtaposed against the stately 52 foot oak table. This can sit 60 guests for banquet-style dining under gentle candlelight, making it ideal for opulent dinner parties. For a less formal gathering or a more intimate meal, the Chapter House can seat up to 40 guests and our rustic barn has been tried and tested by friends and family alike for lively dinners and casual lunches.  Our pretty courtyard is a great space for ‘street food’ vendors and truly informal dining. 

Exclusive distillery events

If you are searching for something completely different to truly wow your guests then we have the perfect setting for your event. We are the only distillery to offer a dining experience amongst the stills themselves for up to 20 guests. You could then retreat to our cosy yet sophisticated Legacy Bar for a dram from our expertly crafted tasting wheel.


We know that a lot of the best parties don’t involve much sitting down so we have plenty of spaces to get your dancing shoes on. Our unusually decorated Apothecary is striking and could double up as your own cocktail bar, whilst the Visitor Centre is ideal for dancing,  drinks receptions or champagne and canapes. A sleek yet historical backdrop.

Come and meet the team with your ideas and we will guide you around and accommodate to your needs.


The rustic ruins of Lindores Abbey offer such a beautiful backdrop for your perfect wedding day and photographs. Whether it’s setting up a marquee or having your reception in the Distillery itself, we have many options to offer.
