Lindore's Abbey

Lindore's Abby Aqua Vitae


Aqua Vitae, a multi award winning handcrafted botanical spirit, is made on site using spices, dried fruit and locally grown green herbs such as Douglas fir and sweet cicely. With citrus notes and full of sweet and spiced flavours, it is delicious as a mixed drink or a cocktail base.The earliest Aqua Vitae was made at Lindores as long ago as 1494, and Lindore's Abbey authentically recreated that recipe and reimagined it as an inquisitively versatile spirit. Today, this spirit is distilled in pot stills and then infused with a blend of spices and herbs, including cleavers, and sweet cicely, which grow in our gardens, amidst the grounds of the ancient Abbey. It is entirely natural, with no added sugars.


Initial light top notes of peach and pear, give way to hints of ginger, clove and cinnamon spice.
Rich, caramel sweetness and some lovely light herbal notes on the finish. Complex and rewarding.
