Abbey Road, Newburgh, Fife, KY14 6HH
Today’s deal will see you and a partner enjoy an hour long distillery tour, learning about the processes and history of whisky making at Lindores Abbey Distillery. Find out what goes in to producing Scotland’s famous tipple, and once you’ve learned the ins and outs of distilling, you’ll be able to try two delicious drams for yourself!
For an even more hands-on experience, opt for an apothecary tour. Newly launched in 2018, Lindores Abbey’s apothecary Tim Foster will share his insider knowledge with you after touring the distillery, and you’ll even get to make your own delicious version of Aqua Vitae using herbs, spices and spirit essences. These sessions last two and a half hours and include a 20cl bottle of your own hand-labelled Aqua Vitae to take away and enjoy at home – cheers!
Don't forget to visit the onsite Legacy bar for some more whiskey or even a Champagne afternoon tea to really make a day of it!
Known as the spiritual home of Scottish whisky, Lindores Abbey Distillery sits in a converted farm building across from the historic Abbey. The new distillery and visitor centre have been finished to an exceptionally high standard, complete with floor to ceiling windows in the still-room offering great views across to the Abbey ruins. With the first distilling on the premises in 523 years taking place in December 2017, the distillery is set to produce 150,000 litres of spirit a year, and you’ll be lucky enough to see how it’s all done!
