About This Lindores Abbey whisky

Lindores Single Malt MCDXCIV is the first whisky to be produced at Lindores Abbey in over 500 years. It is a special place. Lindores is recognised as the site of the first recorded distillation of Scotch whisky way back in 1494! MCDXCIV represents the year 1494 in Roman characters. 

A long wash fermentation period coupled with Lindores Abbey’s unusual sister spirit stills set up produces a single malt of remarkable character for its age. The Sister Spirit Stills enhance the excellent flavours captured during the long fermentation period, through additional copper contact. It's then been matured for around three and a half years in bourbon barrels, red wine barriques, and sherry butts. 

An excellent, award-winning, whisky from Lindores Abbey. And an exciting promise of great things to come from this ancient-yet-young distillery.

What you need to know about taxes

All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.

UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.

We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.

For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
