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.

  1. Good morning,

    I am contacting you regarding potential openings at Lindores Abbey. It would be an absolute joy to be involved in such an exiting new producer of my favorite drink. Please could you advise as to what positions will be available so that I can submit my CV accordingly.

    Many thanks,

    Heather Falconer

  2. Hello and good morning Helen, my name is Colin Gray.
    I have been following the Lindores Abbey project and progress for some time now, and more recently turned this interest into membership of the distillery. I’m very much looking forward to visiting later in the year.
    I also noticed that according to your website there are a number of positions currently available. Although Mouser-in-Chief seems to be the most prestigious of all the vacancies needed, I however after some thought have to agree that going with a feline applicant would be for the best.
    That being said I would very much like express an interest in being part of the visitor centre team.
    Kind regards, Colin

    note: I would be more than happy to supply more information about myself if requested.
