Lindores Abbey Distillery is delighted to release its first New Make Spirit.

Limited Edition, 20cl

Category: Tags: ,


The New Make that has been filling our casks for the last year is at the point where we feel it has a consistency of character and meets the expectation of a spirit coming from Lindores Abbey. It has been hard and it has been challenging but we decided to work with the distillery to give us a character delivered with grace. Not only are we happy with the spirit but the early maturing spirit in cask shows great signs of promise, let the journey begin – Drew McKenzie Smith, Managing Director of Lindores Abbey

New Make Spirit

We have now been through four seasons of distillation at Lindores and have worked with the distillery to define our spirit. We had a direction, but the distillery decided to offer us up a new intriguing spirit instead. We went from nutty, to cereal, to malty, to pears, to fruity and to finally a spirit which combines all of these and more. There is also a sweetness and a spiciness with an incredible mouth feel.

What did we do to get to this final place?

We increased our fermentations to 114 hours to bring out that added tropical fruitiness. We stopped the wash still at first sign of frothing, let it rest and then slowly brought the heat back into the still. We ran the spirit during the cut on the spirit stills very, very slowly, and we also cut in high at 75-76% and came down to 66%. Interestingly at around 68-69% on the cut, the spirit has an amazing caramel and butterscotch nose with others picking up peaches and strawberries. The final spirit is robust, complex, and interesting and that’s exactly what we hoped it would be – Gary Haggart, Distillery Manager
