Join us for an Apothecary Tour with our Apothecary, Tim Foster. These experiences offer a fantastic chance to get ‘hands on’ in making your own delicious version of Aqua Vitae, using herbs, spices and spirit essences.
Our first bottled release of Aqua Vitae is a tribute to the origins of Scotch as we know it today. The earliest ‘aqua vitae’ that was made at Lindores Abbey as long ago as 1494. Thought to have helped to ‘sloeth age’ and ‘abandoneth melancholy’, it was a powerful tonic that was drunk by kings and commoners alike.
These sessions last two and a half hours and include a Distillery Tour and tasting, as well as a 20cl bottle of your own hand-labelled Aqua Vitae to take away and enjoy at home.
Limited spaces and strictly by prior appointment, these tours are £75.00 per person.
Maximum of eight people per session.BOOK NOW

“This week, I visited this recently opened distillery and it amazed me. I went there not to learn the production process but actually for the history in general and the place in the history of whisky that Lindores Abbey belongs to. And it went beyond what I expected, not only because I was able to learn about the history of whisky but also because the visitor center is surely the most beautiful I have seen so far. As for the distillery, it is very new (they began distilling in December) and yet it is rooted in its history, which make sit not just an avant-garde approach, but instead rather a homecoming. Truly a distillery that is worth visiting at any cost !! If I could give 6 star rate, I think I would give it to Lindores Abbey Distillery !!”
