Lindores-Abbey

Earlier this week, archaeologists unearthed a medieval structure at Lindores Abbey Distillery, which is thought to be one of the “oldest possible whisky stills ever discovered”.

The discovery at the Fife-based Scotch whisky distillery is believed to be an installation used for distilling during medieval times.

Archaeologists who were present at the dig confirmed the structure’s features are “characteristic” of traditional kiln stills used at the time, and also found residue inside that “is certainly in keeping” with brewing and distilling from medieval times.
