The launch of this first general release bottling from the “spiritual home of Scotch whisky” marks 527 years since whisky was first recorded at the Lindores Abbey site in Fife.

Lindores Single Malt MCDXCIV, is said to deliver notes of mellow vanilla, caramel, orchard fruits, pear drops and toffee apples on the nose. Followed by notes of mellow vanilla, dried fruits, citrus and hints of spice on the palate.

The first run of bottlings of Lindores Single Malt MCDXCIV, will come presented in special commemorative packaging.

Commenting on the news, Drew McKenzie Smith, Founder and MD of Lindores Abbey Distillery, said: “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.”

Earlier this year, the distillery launched its very first single malt whisky, which was and is still available exclusively to members of its 1494 members club.

The Lindores Single Malt MCDXCIV, will be available from specialist retailers, from July 2nd, for a RRP of £46.00.
