Although Lindores Abbey has been in the McKenzie Smith family ownership for over 100 years it was  2001 when two unrelated incidents planted the germ of an idea in the mind of a young Drew McKenzie Smith,  who was  working as a chef nearby.

Whilst learning of the Abbey’s history in distillation for the first time from a website “Connoisseur Scotland” Drew was also shown a book by his Father, written by the late Michael Jackson “Scotland and its whiskies”.

In particular, the words written on p127, “For the whisky lover it is a pilgrimage”, leapt off the page!

15 years of commitment, patient planning, industry engagement and no small amount of encouragement only served to further drive Drew and his wife Helen’s passion for the re-creation of a distillery at Lindores.

2016 saw building on the new distillery commence once the necessary investment had been secured.

2017 saw the first distillation and now in 2021 the patience and passion are rewarded.
