Enjoy the ONLY whisky distillery in Lake District.

The Lakes Distillery is England’s largest and Cumbria’s only whisky distillery, recently voted as “one of the best new distilleries in the world” by Time Out New York. With an award winning tour, Michelin-Guide recommended Bistro and luxury gift shop selling a range of handcrafted quality spirits, The Lakes Distillery is one to watch.

Following a £9m investment and three years in development, The Lakes Distillery opened in December 2014 in The Lake District National Park with the vision of producing world class spirits that will be global brands recognised and respected around the world.  

Since then, they have become one of Cumbria’s leading award winning tourist attractions, welcoming 100,000 visitors in its first year.

Set in a beautifully renovated Victorian cattle farm in the edge of Bassenthwaite Lake, the Distillery is making whisky history with their Founders’ Club. This 10 year limited edition whisky collection, worth £795, is drawn from the first one hundred whisky casks ever produced at the Distillery.

The Founders’ Club also entitles you to a host of other benefits including unlimited tours, online discounts and exclusive events. This is your chance to be involved right from the beginning and support the English whisky revolution.
