Lindores Abbey Distillery

Lindores Abbey Distillery is a Scotch whisky distillery in Newburgh in the Lowlands whisky region in Scotland and is directly opposite the Abbey. It is officially recognised site of the first recorded distillation of Scotch whisky. It was back in 1494 that King James IV commissioned Brother John Cor at Lindores Abbey to make aqua vitae with eight bolls of malt. After a break of almost 523 years the stills at Lindores Abbey Distillery are flowing. Twenty years in the making and we can now enjoy a whisky again from where it all began.
