The Apothecary

Find out what goes into producing whisky, and once you’ve learned the ins and outs of distilling, you’ll be able to try two delicious drams for yourself! We even provide little takeaways for the drivers so no need to drink and drive.




Our  whisky and champagne afternoon teas are served in the atmospheric surroundings of the Legacy Bar, with its glorious views of Lindores Abbey and the river Tay beyond.

The Legacy Bar

Leave all your worries behind and retreat to our cosy yet sophisticated Legacy Bar for a dram or a delicious Aqua Vitae cocktail designed by our brand ambassador Andy. The Legacy Bar is named as such as it embodies our ethos; marrying together our rich history with the view over the ruins and our future with the hum of distillation coming through from the adjacent still house; it is the ideal place to relax with friends and drink in the atmosphere.

The Legacy Bar is open daily from 11:00 until 16:00 and on Friday evenings until 21:00. We also offer a selection of Scottish Cheese and meat platters to accompany your drams and cocktails which are exclusive to the Legacy Bar.

We exclusively hire out the Legacy Bar for private or corporate events, so get in touch with the Events Team if you would like to know more.



We try to ensure that all our visitors have a safe and enjoyable visit regardless of their access requirements. We are very dog friendly so registered assistance dogs are very welcome on site, as are any four legged friends, and we have water bowls outside for them. Disabled parking is available 5 metres from our entrance. The Apothecary , Visitor Centre and Refectory café are all on one level with disabled toilets.

Dietary requirements – Full allergen information is available in our café and we always try to accommodate anyone’s individual requirements. At our Events and Weddings we always ask for dietary requirements and our chef goes to great lengths to prepare special dishes for these guests.  In our Refectory and at our BBQ’s we always have gluten free rolls on offer plus we always make sure we use stock in the soup that doesn’t contain gluten or any form of meat or fish. If you have any other specialised dietary requirements, please let us know in advance and we will do our best to accommodate them.
