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.

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 skilfully blend a range of curious tinctures to create your very own, unique Aqua Vitae. 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!

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.
