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.

Good tour and introductory video, our guide Sue was very helpful and pleasant. Tasting session was good ,if you like gin theirs is excellent, the whiskey is a 5 malt blend but contains none from the distillery itself as they only started in 2014/2015 and must wait 3 yrs before they can use the product. Bistro food was good and service very attentive, daytime prices are ok but evening gets a bit expensive. Worth going to see the Derwent abstraction point as it takes you past the Alpacas field. Allow plenty of time to get there as the roadworks on the A66 out of Keswick are a pain.

Idyllic location, beautiful surroundings, delicious food at the bistro and very friendly service. The tour of the distillery was most interesting and I really enjoyed the tasting, Would recommend it to my friends.

A little disappointed in the whole set up also they should have a coffee shop not just the bistro as my wife and friend were not doing the tour and the Bistro were not keen on them having just a coffee were more interested in serving food which was very expensive.
