Lindores Abbey Distillery Tour: Learning About the Origin of Scotch Whisky

The very last stop on my 5-day trip with Haggis Adventures was the Lindores Abbey Distillery, possibly the birthplace of Scotch whisky as we know it. We were lucky enough to get a tour by the head of the distillery, and I learned even more about whisky than I had already picked up on all my other distillery tours.
