From Our Editors

Sitting by the Bassenthwaite Lake and surrounded by picturesque views of the Lake District, this distillery is home to high-quality spirits produced on a small scale. Located in a 1850s model farm adapted to the requirements of a present-day spirit-making business, The Lakes Distillery takes pride in their gin and vodka, as well as blended and single malt whisky. The facilities feature an old barn housing the mash and still houses, an old cattle house converted into a warehouse, and a number of cattle sheds remade into a shop, bar and bistro. The distillery offers tours to those curious about the process of spirit crafting, with the spirits available for purchase on site.

The distillery is located in old farm buildings which have been brilliantly renovated. The tour is very good & informative. It is excellent value & definitely worth doing.

Very interesting tour and place. The tour guide and gentlemen in the shop were excellent and the alpacas were a treat. Only downside was we arrived a little early and wanted to have a quick coffee in the bistro but were told we couldn't be accommodated because we hadn't booked a table. There were plenty of tables and we would have only been there 10 or 15 minutes so dissapointed with this approach. A little common sense would have solved the problem.

The tour was very interesting, not least the video of the river Derwent from source to sea. The distillery itself is amazing....well worth a visit. Afternoon tea was about the best we have had yet. Not cheap unless you nab an offer but very good nevertheless. A lovely afternoon.
