Christmas Party Nights

Private Cask Ownership Open Day, TBC 10am - 3pm

Have you ever thought about buying or owning a whisky cask, whether for passion, investment or a bit of both? Experts agree that there has never been a better time to invest in whisky. With bottles fetching more than $1M at auctions, just imagine what an entire, bespoke cask could be worth in 10-20 years’ time.

So, come along to our Private Cask Open Day at any time between 10am – 3pm (free entry) and find out all about how private cask ownership works and the costs involved.

There will be talks from our Cask Custodian about the benefits and investment potential of owning a cask, and from our Distillery Manager about how the process works, when you can expect to sample your own whisky and how bottling and VAT/taxes work.

There will also be an opportunity to try some samples from our resting whisky, see the variety of casks that we have available for you to choose from and free tours of the distillery and warehouse so that you can learn more about us.

You can take the chance to speak to Elliot, our Cask Custodian and Gary, the Distillery Manager and to ask any questions you may have.

Burning of the Bear

Annual Burning of the Bear Ceremony, Saturday 2nd May 2020, 8pm – Midnight.

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.
