Lindores Abbey Distillery 'Aqua Vitae'
Aqua Vitae is a multi award-winning handcrafted botanical spirit, 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, Aqua Vitae is delicious as a mixed drink or a cocktail base.
The earliest Aqua Vitae was made at Lindores as long ago as 1494, and they’ve authentically recreated that recipe and reimagined it as an inquisitively versatile spirit.
Today, this Aqua Vitae is distilled in pot stills and then infused with a blend of spices and herbs, including cleavers, and sweet cicely, which grow in Lindores' gardens, amidst the grounds of the ancient Abbey. It is entirely natural, with no added sugars.
