As we prepare to open our doors this summer, we are looking to make a couple of crucial appointments, the first being a new distillery cat!
While Downing Street has relied on Larry the cat to be Chief Mouser to the Cabinet, the Lindores Abbey distillery feline, will play a critical role around the preserved ruins of the Abbey, which date back to 1191, and around the barley stores of the new whisky warehouses, as grain is transported from the fields surrounding the distillery to produce Lindores Abbey whisky.
We think they are pretty “big paws to fill”. The candidate must be friendly, hardworking and diligent and will be rewarded with a comfortable home and all the mice they can eat. Fellow cat Toffee will be around to show the new Mouser the ropes but is easing into a well-earned retirement amid the tranquil Abbey ruins at Lindores.
The other key role that needs filling, is that of distillery manager. We are also looking for the right person to join us in bringing Scotch whisky distillation back to its spiritual home at Lindores Abbey.
Friar John Corr made the first recorded whisky in Scotland for King James IV on this very spot in 1494, and we are looking for a special individual – diligent and friendly – to become part of our team at this very exciting new distillery and visitor centre for Scotland.
Additional outgoing and enthusiastic applicants are also being sought to fill roles within the sales, office and visitor centre teams.
Please contact Helen@lindoresabbey.com for further information or to express an interest in any of these roles.
