Lindores Single Malt Scotch Whisky MCDXCIV (1494) 20cl

Default Title InStock

The launch of Lindores Lowland Single Malt Scotch Whisky reconfirms Lindores as a place of real significance in the History of The Scotch Whisky Industry.

As the officially recognised site of the first recorded distillation of  Scotch Whisky in 1494, which appears in the Exchequer Roll of the same year, Lindores is again taking its place in history with its, now commercially available, Single Malt Scotch Whisky.

Over 500 years after Brother John Cor, a Lindores monk, was commissioned by King James IV to turn 8 bolls of malt into Aqua Vitae. Lindores are delighted to re-open the history book and invite you to be part of it and help preserve the Abbey for the next 500 years.

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.

Aqua Vitae is the first release from Lindores Abbey and this, their first single malt will delight whisky lovers all over the world.
