Apothecary Experiences

The perfect gift for those who like the personal touch

An Apothecary Experience

For a really unique gift experience, perhaps buy the whisky lover in your life an Apothecary Experience. 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. Select how much you you want to add of each essence and in what ratio, create your own name for your creation then enjoy your spirit as a sample is made into a cocktail for you in our Legacy Bar. The finished drink is filled into a 20cl bottle, labelled by hand and is entered into our leather bound distillation book for posterity.

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. £75.00 per person.


The perfect gift for those wanting an excitingly shaped gift

A bottle of Aqua Vitae

Aqua Vitae is a handcrafted botanical spirit, made on site using spices, dried fruit and locally grown green herbs such as Douglas fir and sweet cicely, which all grow in our gardens, amidst the grounds of the ancient Abbey. Entirely natural, with no added sugars. Just £40.

With citrus notes and full of sweet and spiced flavours, Aqua Vitae is delicious as a mixed drink or a cocktail base. The earliest Aqua Vitae was made at Lindores as long ago as 1494, and we’ve authentically recreated that recipe and reimagined it as an inquisitively versatile spirit.

We recommend drinking Aqua Vitae in a Highball glass filled with ice, pour over 50ml of Aqua Vitae topped with Ginger Ale, and garnish with a twist of Orange.

Another way to enjoy Aqua Vitae is to simply pour over ice with a twist of orange.

Aqua Vitae is delicious as a mixed drink or a cocktail base and we have an ever growing list of drinks recipes that are being added to by many of our friends and partners in the drinks industry that you can look at and re create HERE

The perfect gift for those who want to start their own collection

A bottle of New Make Spirit

The New Make that has been filling our casks for the last year is at the point where we feel it has a consistency of character and meets the expectation of a spirit coming from Lindores Abbey. It has been hard and it has been challenging but we decided to work with the distillery to give us a character delivered with grace. Not only are we happy with the spirit but the early maturing spirit in cask shows great signs of promise, let the journey begin – Drew McKenzie Smith, Managing Director of Lindores Abbey
