Get a glimpse behind the scenes of our working distillery – discover how we make our whisky, gin and vodka, and why the place we have chosen for The Lakes Distillery is so very special. Explore the magnificent stillroom with our expert and enthusiastic tour guides. Discover the warehouse where our sleeping casks lie. And finally, finish off your tour in the tasting room where you’ll have the opportunity to sample all three of our spirits.
You’ll be taken on a spectacular 25 mile journey from the source of the River Derwent on to the distillery house itself (all without leaving the building!) to see our world class and lovingly created spirits as they are produced… there may even be a visit from another very special spirit!

As this is a working distillery, children under 6 are not allowed on the tour for health & safety reasons.
Please note, for the next two weeks, the distillery production area has “gone silent” – a term used in the industry to describe a temporary summer shutdown whilst water levels are so low in order to perform necessary maintenance and upkeep. We expect to be fully operational again by 1 August. Tours are running as normal however there will be no active distillation in progress. Please contact the tours team on 017687 88850 (option 1) if you would like further information.
