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 Lakes Distillery is well worth a visit. Beautiful setting for a quality building. The staff are very helpful and the tour guide most informative. Following the tour we ate and sampled a botanic Gin in the bistro.
