Description

In 2018 we released our very first New Make Spirit to the public and they sold out by early 2019. We also produced a very limited run of Limited Edition Numbered Bottles that until 30th June 2019 were only available to Members of the 1494.  We are now delighted to release these bottles to the public and allow you to to start your own numbered collection of Lindores Abbey Distillery Special Editions.

These unique bottles cost £22.50, and £2.50 of this is donated to our Preservation Society  to help preserve and continue the traditions that were established here at Lindores over 500 years ago.

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
