Lindores Single Malt Scotch Whisky MCDXCIV (1494) “Commemorative first release”

The first Scotch Whisky from Lindores Abbey Distillery to be made available for purchase by the general public will be released on 2 July, a mere 527 years after distillation was first recorded at Lindores Abbey, Fife, in 1494.

While 1,494 bottles of the inaugural Lindores Abbey release were dispatched for the ‘1494’ Society members in the Spring, the two new releases are the first to be made available for purchase by the public. They are the Lindores Single Malt MCDXCIV (1494) Commemorative release and the Lindores Single Malt MCDXCIV, both containing the same exquisite Lowland single malt spirit with the Commemorative release being presented with a label marking the occasion.

“It is wonderful to announce a date for our first general release, as we know our fans across the world have been keen to enjoy a sip of whisky history. The response to our inaugural members’ release was hugely positive and we are delighted to be able to now share the Commemoratively labelled Lindores and Lindores MCDXCIV. The thinking behind this is that we want all our whisky to be accessible and enjoyed rather than only collected. If people want to enjoy our product they can do so even if they are not fortunate enough to obtain a commemoratively labelled bottle.”

Drew McKenzie Smith, founder and MD of Lindores Abbey Distillery

Both the Commemorative and the MCDXCIV Single Malts will be available to purchase from a variety of independent retailers and stockists, a full list of which can be found on the Lindores website. The Core release will also be available directly for purchase at the distillery or on our website www.lindoresabbeydistillery.com

Notes for editors

The first general release from Lindores Abbey Distillery, both the Commemorative and the MCDXCIV will be available from a variety of stockists which can be found on our website. For access to the inaugural 1494 bottling, whisky lovers can still join the 1494 Preservation Society and accompany us on our journey to revive the spiritual home of Scotch whisky.
Only 1,494 Memberships to the 1494 Society are, and will ever be, available – once they are all spoken for, there will be no way to procure a bottle of the first release directly from Lindores Abbey Distillery. Only a fraction of membership places remain.

  1. Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,
    I am a member of the Prereservation Society and regularly receive your interesting newsletter.
    I find your New Make very tasty and I am very excited about your first bottling.
    But when and where can I buy these in Germany.
    No dealer listed on your card yet
    and I’m afraid the first bottling is sold out quickly

    Yours sincerely
    Gerd Dreßler
