Abbey 1The “spiritual home of Scotch whisky” has been stirring up success in several of the national titles this week.

Lindores Abbey in Newburgh on the north coast of Fife is widely regarded as the spiritual home of Scotch whisky through its association with Friar John Cor who in 1494 paid duty on malt in order to make Aqua Vitae for King James IV.

This recognition in the Exchequer Roll makes it the first written evidence of whisky distillation in Scotland.

Now leading land and estate experts Bell Ingram have been appointed to help to bring the Abbey and surrounding area back to life through the creation of a whisky distillery and visitor experience at Lindores Abbey, the spiritual home of Scotch whisky.

After being used as an exclusive by Scotland on Sunday, the interesting story went on to grab headlines in the Times and the Scotsman, both of which also used the story online.

The story was also picked up by top trade title The Spirits Business. This magazine publishes both online and in print with an impressive circulation figure of 13,000.
