Lindores Abbey DistilleryNewburgh, north Fife
Lindores Abbey Distillery - now open and producing aqua vitae. We wish more subjects
had such good labelling!
The monks of Lindores supplied not only aqua vitae to the likes of King James IV from
before 1500 but also sold fruit from their extensive orchards and of course salmon
from the river Tay.
From the south-west showing the entrance area - information centre,
café and shop - as well as the generous parking area.
From over the Abbey you get an excellent view of the copper stills. The main
building was very cleverly constructed using local traditional materials as an
almost exact replacement for some old disused barns on the site and blends in
really well with the local landscape.
