The brainchild of Drew McKenzie-Smith and his wife Helen, construction on Lindores Abbey Distillery started summer 2016. The distillery is sited next to the ancient ruins of the 12th century abbey built by French Tironesian Monks.

In 1494, Friar John Cor, a monk at Lindores Abbey, paid duty on malt to make ‘aqua vitae’ for the king. Recorded in the Exchequer roll, this is the first known written evidence of whisky distillation in Scotland, leading to the abbey being considered the ‘spiritual home’ of Scotch whisky by some.
