Be part of our Plans

Our 1494 £500 Memberships are for whisky and history lovers alike, who also want to be a part of the protection and conservation of Scotch Whisky’s oldest landmark. By becoming a 1494 £500 member, you will truly help us to preserve and continue the traditions that were established here over 500 years ago.

 

Our Mission

We want to see Lindores Abbey flourish again as a site for research, learning, brewing, distilling, horticulture, and even beekeeping. By reviving so many of the ancient crafts and traditions that were practised here centuries ago, as part of our Preservation Society we hope to see the site returned to its former glory. We have now built a Single Malt distillery in the grounds of the former Abbey. We are now looking forward to reinstating the heritage orchards and extensive gardens which were first introduced here by the Tironensian monks, following their arrival in the 12th Century.

In 2017, spirit started flowing once again from copper stills at Lindores Abbey. We try to learn as much as we can from the great Scottish distillers around us, both past and present. We are looking forward to bringing a very modern whisky-making approach to this ancient site. By purchasing a 1494 £500 Membership, you will be part of this vision.

    Great to be a part of the first 1494. Great to have a distillery in Newburgh! Not sure if I will drink the bottles or save them for a special occasion. I have a wee while to decide!

  2. Johnathan

    I would like to know more about this preservation society and what its membership entails. This brand of whisky is unknown to me but nevertheless I am intrigued by it. I am interested in purchasing this membership but I must consider it. How long will this membership be available for purchase?
    Please do contact me as soon as possible.
    Thank you for reading, Johnathan.

      Dear Johnathan

      Thank you for your mail and for your interest in Lindores Abbey Distillery and the 1494 Preservation Society.

      I am not sure how much time you will have had to read some of the content of our website and therefore you may not be aware that we have only very recently commenced distilling and so it will be at least three years until we have a malt whisky to sell, hence the reason that you are unfamiliar with our brand.

      You may well have picked up the fact that Lindores Abbey plays a significant role in the history of Scotch whisky. The distillery is built on a site adjacent to the existing abbey ruins; the abbey was founded in 1191 and sacked by followers of John Knox in circa 1590, it is a passionate desire of ours to preserve this beautiful and historic site for many generations and this is one of the reasons behind the establishment of the Preservation Society.

      On a practical level those who join this exclusive club, restricted to just 1494 members, are entitled to a 70cl bottle of our Aqua Vitae, a bottle when it is ready of our inaugural malt whisky, a wooden name plaque displayed in our Legacy Bar, a fruit tree planted in their honour, invitations to events at Lindores abbey including a complimentary invitation along with a guest to the annual bear ‘burning’ ceremony and ceilidh, free tours for a year for the member and guest, a wooden membership card, 10% off sales at the distillery and the opportunity to purchase limited edition whiskies relating to their own unique number.

      I hope that this helps a little by way of explanation but do please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

      With very kind regards, Helen
