Lindores Abbey Distillery- For the whisky lover it is a pilgrimage. Lindores Abbey's widely recognised links to the earliest reference to Scotch whisky. After 500 years you will be able to see single malt distillation happening once again.
Lindores Abbey Distillery and visitor centre opened its doors this August 2017, heralding the revival of the site of the earliest written reference to Scotch whisky production and its vision for future preservation. The £10 million project boasts an innovative distillery, with three stills from Forsyths of Rothes already in position within the still house; a centre celebrating the remarkable heritage of Lindores Abbey’s founding Tironensian monks via a stunning cloister exhibition and events space; and tours of the abbey ruins on the banks of the River Tay which were founded in 1192 by David Earl of Huntingdon on land given to him by his brother King William I and which have played host to generations of Scottish royalty – and even William Wallace.
