Burning of the Bear
Burning of the Bear

Annual Burning of the Bear Ceremony, September 2020

CANCELLATION OF BEAR BURNING CEREMONY 2020 – It is with immense regret that after various discussions with the local authority, we have taken the sad decision to cancel the Bear Burning Ceremony for 2020. This is not a decision that we have taken lightly and we are aware that some of you had made plans to join us in September after the initial postponement from earlier this year. Naturally we shall be offering complete refunds for your tickets and if you wouldn’t mind contacting either Jane or myself on helen@lindoresabbeydistillery / jane@lindoresabbeydistillery or calling us on 01337 842 547, then we will arrange this for you immediately.

Unfortunately we feel that it is unlikely that we shall be able to host a gathering of in excess of 300 people in the near future but we shall keep you all informed of the new date for 2021, let’s keep everything crossed that an effective and safe vaccine is on the way.

We do understand how disappointing this is for all of you loyal Lindores supporters and we are really sad not to be hosting the event this year. As you know it is one of our absolute highlights and Drew and I, the family and the entire team will miss your presence this year. We truly appreciate the support you all show to the distillery and we very much look forward to seeing you all very soon.

Thank you so much for your understanding.


In 2020 we will once again celebrate by lighting the 300 foot bear which is carved out on the hill above our distillery and hosting a ceilidh to mark the occasion on Saturday 2nd May 2020, 8pm – Midnight.

The bear and ragged staff was carved into the hill to commemorate the links between the Earl of Warwick and the first Abbot of Lindores Abbey, Guido who was a cadet of the Earl. The lighting of the bear is a truly spectacular sight and the ancient wee town of Newburgh comes to a standstill to witness it.

With drams a plenty from the Legacy Bar and our delicious Aqua Vitae serves and cocktails on offer there will be something for everyone. The evening starts at 8pm and concludes at midnight.

As well as a welcome drink we will also have delicious food, with vegetarian options available, followed by  a Ceilidh and the Burning of the Bear ceremony, with a dram of Aqua Vitae for during the ceremony.
