Your opportunity to own shares in The Lakes

At The Lakes Distillery, we not only look at what whisky is, but what it can become.

A design-led maker, we are open to a world of new inspiration, pushing boundaries as we seek to express emotions, ideas, and feelings through the language of whisky.

We believe we are at an inflexion point and ready to scale, and our innovative approach means we are well-positioned in a global whisky market that is worth $60bn and predicted to almost double in the next 9 years.

This is your chance to join us on a journey to create one of the world's finest sherry-led single malt whiskies.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is Equity Crowdfunding?

When you invest in equity you buy a percentage or share of a business in the hope that the value of that company will increase over time. Hopefully, the business you have backed goes on to make an ‘exit’ at a higher value than when you invested, and you will get a return on your investment and make a profit. Please be aware, investments of this nature carry risks to your capital.

Who are Crowdcube?

With a mission to make equity investment accessible, Crowdcube brings together some of Europe's most exciting businesses with a community of over 1.2m members. Whether you are a beginner or experienced investor, their crowdfunding platform connects you with businesses, allowing them to issue shares to and raise money from those who want to invest in companies they believe in.

Who can invest?

Anyone from anywhere in the world can invest, provided they are over the age of 18. Unfortunately, due to local laws and regulations, investors in the USA, Canada, and Japan are not able to invest in The Lakes Distillery's crowdfunding.

Does pre-registering commit me to invest?

No. Pre-registering simply means that you will be first to receive updates and information about our fundraising. You will also be offered the exclusive opportunity to invest before fundraising opens to the public, but there is absolutely no commitment to do so.

How much can I invest?

The minimum investment is £14.50, which equates to 10 shares in The Lakes Distillery. Currently, there is no set maximum investment.

What does this mean for existing investors?

Existing investors are eligible to invest again and can pre-register their interest in the same way as new investors.

Investing in businesses involves risks, including illiquidity, lack of dividends, loss of investment, and dilution. To help you understand the risks involved when investing with Crowdcube, please read their full Risk Warning. Crowdcube is targeted exclusively at investors who understand these risks and make their own investment decisions. If you are unsure, please seek the appropriate professional advice, invest aware, and diversify your investments. You will only be able to invest via Crowdcube once you are registered with them.
