Lindores Abbey is formally the birthplace and spiritual home of Scotch whisky. In the year 1494, the local monk John Corr produced a strong and spicy drink from local barley and called it Aqua Vitae. Scotch whisky was born!
Lindores Abbey Distillery, which has been in production since the end of 2017, is situated a good 10 meters from the remains of the former monastery.
Drew and Helen Mackenzie Smith have lived at Lindores Farm for decades and as such own the remains of the famous abbey. Drew in particular delved into the past of both the abbey and the local Scotch whisky and over the years the idea of building a new distillery on this historic site became more and more serious.
Since the autumn of 2021, the historic Lindores Abbey whisky has seen the light again.
Color: dark red copper
Nose: firm toffee with cherries and berries (sours), Oriental spices and sweet and sour Chinese sauce.
Taste: Here we first have the deep and spicy Oriental spices, then the dark toffee and pickled berries and cherries take over in jam form.
Finish: A wonderfully spicy combination of the flavors continues to hold and warmth on the tongue and palate.
