If you are looking for something a bit more elegant you can pre-book Afternoon Teas which you can enjoy in the atmospheric surroundings of the Legacy Bar, with its glorious views of Lindores Abbey and the river Tay beyond.

To make everyone as comfortable as possible we host them on set weekends each month, in 2 sittings at 12pm-2pm and 2.30pm-4.30pm. Many visitors then like to take a stroll around the historic Abbey ruins to help to finish off the afternoon.

Minimum order 2 people | £25 per person | For dates see the Afternoon Tea page.

After smelling and tasting the individual botanicals and essences available, you will start to make your very own Aqua Vitae. You all start with the same new make spirit base, but from there, you choose which tinctures to add, and in which quantities. This means that the spirit you end up with will be completely unique and to your very individual taste.

During the process you’ll be able to keep notes on the different ingredients, and what you thought of various combinations, before you create your final spirit.

Once your spirit is bottled, you need to come up with a name for you creation, and we will then label and date your Spirit, as well as note in down for posterity in our leather bound Distillery recipe book. You can then take your spirit home and let all your friends and family sample it!



Apothecary Dinners

Long before pharmacies and doctors, we relied upon an Apothecary. These learned individuals studied the health giving benefits of herbs and spices and more often than not studied the arts of distillation. Should you have taken ill 500 years ago, you’d seek out the Apothecary at the local monastery who would prescribe a tincture made of herb, spice or fruit to cure your ailments.

Today you can sit in a modern recreation of an Apothecary here at Lindores and skillfully blend a range of curious tinctures to create your very own, unique Aqua Vitae.

Similar to blending whisky or creating a gin, our Apothecary Experiences are one of a kind workshops, that take you right back to the ancient arts of distillation.
