Fife Whisky Festival Opening Dinner - Friday, 8th March 2019
We are delighted to be hosting the Fife Whisky Festival Opening Dinner, on 8th March from 6.30 – 11pm.
On arrival you will be greeted with a delicious Aqua Vitae cocktail and have the opportunity to mingle with the other guests in the Legacy Bar and Still Room before taking your seat for the banquet style dinner in The Cloister.
Each of the three courses, prepared by our award winning chef Andrew Wilkie, will be paired with a carefully selected whisky:
Starter – Scotch Broth with Parsley Toast, Main – Roast Chicken Chasseur with Creamed Potato and Green Beans, Dessert – Warm Apple Crumble with Vanilla Ice Cream (Vegetarian options available)
We are honoured that the Chief Executive of the Scotch Whisky Association, Karen Betts,will speak after dinner. As the head of the industry’s trade body, there is no better person to talk to you about protecting and future-proofing the demand for Scotch whisky.
Following on from tea or coffee and your fourth dram, the fantastic Fife duo, The Coaltown Daisies, will entertain you with their dynamic folk, soul and americana music.
Great whisky, great food, great company, great music. This is an event not to be missed!

Annual Burning of the Bear Ceremony 4th May 2019
In 2019 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.
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 a Delicious Hog Roast, 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.
