unique FATHER’S DAY GIFT
If the usual socks and wine gums just won’t cut it this year, for the more discerning dads out there, surprise your Dad with a unique father’s day gift that shows you really know him.
You could buy him a bottle of our first release Aqua Vitae which is a tribute to the origins of Scotch as we know it today.
Or for a really special Father’s Day gift, how about buying your Dad a Membership to our Preservation Society, which includes a bottle of Aqua Vitae.
Our first bottled release of Aqua Vitae is a tribute to the origins of Scotch as we know it today. The earliest ‘aqua vitae’ that was made at Lindores Abbey as long ago as 1494. Thought to have helped to ‘sloeth age’ and ‘abandoneth melancholy’, it was a powerful tonic that was drunk by kings and commoners alike and makes a unique Father’s Day gift for whisky lovers and collectors.
A New Era
Today, our Aqua Vitae is distilled in pot stills and then infused with a blend of spices and herbs, including cleavers, lemon verbena, douglas fir and sweet cicely, which all grow in our gardens, amidst the grounds of the ancient Abbey. Entirely natural, with no added sugars.
Initial light top notes of peach and pear, give way to masses of ginger, clove and cinnamon spice. Rich, caramel sweetness and some lovely light herbal notes on the finish. Complex and rewarding.
Enjoy Aqua Vitae simply over ice with a twist of orange, or in a longer drink with plenty of fresh mint and a small amount of sugar syrup, topped with soda water.
