Lindores Abbey Distillery
Lindores Abbey Distillery can be found in the Spiritual Home of Scotch Whisky in Fife.
Distilling was taking place on this site at least as early as 1494, although it was most probably happening long before that. The earliest written reference to Scotch Whisky (or Aqua Vitae, as it was then known) appears in the Exchequer Roll of the same year. It mentioned a Brother John Cor, a Lindores monk, who was commissioned by King James IV to turn 8 bolls of malt into Aqua Vitae. Thought to have helped to ‘sloeth age’ and ‘abandoneth melancholy’, it was a powerful tonic that was drunk by kings and commoners alike.
