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 tour is very interesting and lasts about an hour, it also includes a tasting session of the gin, vodka and blended whisky they currently make. You get a £5 voucher per person of a standard 70cl bottle of spirit which is good as the cheapest is £29.50. The distillery is a beautifully restored farm and is well signposted so easy to find.

We really enjoyed the tour. Our guide, Simon, gave a very informative talk about the distillery and its history and working. We also enjoyed the tasting as the final part of the tour! Everything has been done to a high standard.
