The self-proclaimed "spiritual home of whisky", Lindores Abbey was referenced in the Scottish Exchequer Roll of 1494 - the earliest written note on scotch - and is widely recognised as being where it all began. Tours are focused on the modern production process, but the medieval abbey's surroundings ooze history. Private tastings including chocolate and cheese pairings from Fife artisans, while you can also try your hand at monastic tasks such as basket weaving or calligraphy. Come the weekend, regional chefs cook fillet steak and local lobster on a courtyard barbecue fuelled by whisky-infused wood.
