Private Tours

Private group tours can be arranged and can operate throughout the day at times to suit the group.

We have three types of Private Tour:

  1. A Private tour with 2 drams (Lindores MCDXCIV and Aqua Vitae) –£25.00 per person: You will enjoy a private tour of our visitor centre and distillery learning about the extensive history of our 12th Century site and getting to view the production process of Single Malt Scotch whisky up close from Barley to Bottle. After your tour you will be guided through a tasting of our unique Aqua Vitae and our award winning MCDXCIV Single Malt Scotch Whisky in our stunning Legacy Tasting Room. The tour lasts approximately 90 minutes but as it is a private tour we can be flexible depending on our availability.
  2. The Distillery Cask Private tour with 5 drams (Lindores MCDXCIV plus 4 x Distillery Exclusive Single Casks) – £55.00 per person: These Single Casks are what we consider to be the most exciting and exceptional examples of each cask type that we currently use at Lindores. This will take approximately two hours as these whiskies are bottled at Cask Strength so it is not a tasting to rush.
  3. Chocolate and Whisky Pairing – £50.00 per head: This engaging experience combines a mini private tour of our distillery and visitor centre culminating in an exciting tasting in our Legacy Tasting Room. The tasting will be a walkthrough of 4 of our Single Malts paired with a selection of gorgeous handmade chocolates from our friends The Cocoa Tree in Pittenweem. This is an opportunity to explore in more depth the connection between palate and nose and understand how you, yourself perceive flavour. This experience takes approximately 2 hours to allow enough time to savour the tasting but we can shorten this if required.

We can tailor the tour to your group’s specific interests and can even create a bespoke VIP Tour upon request. French, German, Spanish and Mandarin Tours can also be arranged.

You may also wish to finish off your Tour Experience with a visit to our Legacy Bar where you can enjoy an array of Aqua Vitae cocktails and drams, or if you are hungry, enjoy some refreshments and choose from our Cheese & Meat Platters.

Corporate Tours

For a totally unique corporate conference, event or training sessions, book one of our Corporate tours, tastings and dinners.

We can provide, for up to 100 guests, bespoke Distillery Tours, a Drinks & Canape Reception in the Courtyard or Distillery Hall followed by an exclusive tasting of three single distillery cask editions specially selected by our Cask Custodian or Distillery Manager, finished off with a four course meal.

On an exclusive-use basis, your guests will enjoy the distillery’s magical atmosphere undisturbed, after the distillery has closed to the public.

You can choose from two packages and our menus showcase some of the finest produce available in Scotland. We can help you to choose wines, drams and drinks, as well as entertainment and nearby accommodation.

Lindores Transport

The distillery is located in a rural village, so you do need to arrange transport to visit us.
