Product details

Found on the edges of Fife, it looks like Lindores Abbey was always meant to become a distillery, because it’s claimed that in 1494 Lindores Abbey was the site of the first written reference to whisky in Scotland! Later on in 1912, the Abbey and a neighbouring farm were sold to the family of the current owners, but it wasn’t until 2013 that they embarked on a £10 million project to build the current distillery, which finally opened in October 2017.

This whisky was distilled in May 2018 entirely from Fife barley, which went through a very lengthy fermentation of 119 hours, and was filled into the distillery’s 386th cask, an ex-bourbon barrel from Kentucky’s Old Forester. It rested there until June 2022 when it was drawn from the cask, with a yield of just 246 bottles. The long fermentation, slow distillation, and maturation combined make for a sweet, fruit-forward, and gently creamy spirit.
