The 2 July marks an important day for Lindores Abbey Distillery; just a short 527 years after distillation was first recorded at Lindores Abbey, Fife in 1495, the distillery is releasing its single malt to the public.

Although it is the first general release from the distillery, 1,494 bottles of the inaugural Lindores Abbey release were dispatched for the 1494 Society members in the spring.

The two new releases are the first to be made available for purchase by the public, named the Lindores Single Malt MCDCIV (1494) Commemorative Release and the Lindores Single Malt MCDCIV. The two whiskies contain the same Lowland single malt spirit, however, the Commemorative Release is presented with a special label to mark the occasion.

Drew McKenzie Smith, founder and MD of Lindores Abbey Distillery, commented: “It is wonderful to announce a date for our first general release, as we know our fans across the world have been keen to enjoy a sip of whisky history. The response to our inaugural members’ release was hugely positive and we are delighted to be able to now share the Commemoratively labelled Lindores and Lindores MCDXCIV. The thinking behind this is that we want all our whisky to be accessible and enjoyed rather than only collected. If people want to enjoy our product they can do so even if they are not fortunate enough to obtain a commemoratively labelled bottle.”

Both the Commemorative and the MCDXCIV single malts will be available to purchase from a variety of independent retailers and stockists, a full list of which can be found on the Lindores website. The Core release will also be available directly for purchase at the distillery or on its website.
