Our 140th Tweet Tasting; Lindores Abbey

We’re dramspankingly delighted to announce our 140th Tweet Tasting event, and what better way to do so than with a distillery based on the site of the first recorded whisky distillation in Scotland; Lindores Abbey.

The Fife based Lindores Abbey Distillery, the brainchild of Drew McKenzie-Smith and his wife Helen, officially opened last October, followed by the first distillation on the site in over 500 years in December.

Lindores Abbey, is known as the ‘spiritual home’ of Scotch whisky thanks to Friar John Cor, who paid duty on malt in 1494 in order to make ‘aqua vitae’ for the king, an act that was recorded in the Exchequer roll and is the earliest written evidence of whisky distillation in Scotland.

On October 15th, not only will we be pouring and exploring Lindores Abbey Aqua Vitae, we’ll also be providing a rare opportunity to sample some of the distillery’s new make spirit and a cask sample.
