Lindores Abbey Aqua Vitae Description

The earliest reference to Scotch whisky appeared in the 1494 Exchequer Roll, with King James IV requesting 'aqua vitae' from Brother John Corr of Lindores Abbey. The new distillery on the ancient site crafts this unique spirit drink in tribute, using pot still spirit infused with herbs and spices grown in the gardens of the Abbey. Bottled at 40% abv, this expression is completely natural with no added sugar.

The nose is light and fruity, with the palate bringing rich caramel sweetness alongside peach and pear notes, before a cinnamon and ginger spice in the long and lingering finish.

Knowledge Bar

The word whisky derives from the Scots Gaelic 'uisge beatha', a term that itself is a translation of the Latin 'aqua vitae', which means 'water of life'. This Latin term was used in the 1494 Exchequer Rolls – the first recorded reference to whisky – which noted that John Corr, a monk at Lindores Abbey, was afforded ‘eight bolls of malt’ to make aqua vitae for King James IV.
