Whisky Facts for Whisky Lovers
A few days ago I met with Drew Mackenzie Smith the Owner of the Lindores Abbey, where it is said a monk became famous for being named on the oldest recording for whisky in Scotland in the Scottish exchequer roll of Edinburgh: “eight bolls of malt for Friar John Cor wherewith to make Aquavitea” was assigned to in 1494. I have lived around Fife a large part of my life (20 plus years) and never took the time to go there, well now I have been! I didnt have time to visit the ruins but had a great chat with Drew about whisky history, that was lots of fun! There are a number of ruins around that area – one could be mislead by thinking that the ruins of the Abbey are located in Lindores, they are in fact in Newburgh only a few miles from Lindores.
Hope you enjoy the updates and intersting whisky facts!
