Your journey begins as you enter the 150 year old restored Victorian Farm to discover how we created our distillery and the history behind our unique location, including the symbolic Quatrefoil that adorns the farm in over 30 locations. As you take in the stunning surroundings, you are then whisked away on a 25 mile journey via our exhilarating video drone footage. From the source of the River Derwent, to the Distillery House itself, expect breathtaking views of the Lake District National Park as you get a unique perspective of what goes into creating our whisky, gin and vodka.
Head into the heart of our distillery and explore sights, sounds and smells of our magnificent stillroom with one of our expert tour guides. This part of the tour is perfect for those looking to get up close and find out more about our working distillery. You will get to see distillation in action in our handcrafted copper sills, explore our atmospheric cask warehouse and find out more about our wood selection policy and how the cask affects the maturation and character of the spirit.
No distillery tour would be complete without a trip to the tasting room! Finish your tour with a guided tasting of three of our world class spirits and a voucher for £5 off any 70cl purchase in-store, the perfect end to your Lakes Distillery journey.
