Born of The Lake District

The outstanding natural beauty of the Lake District has forever captivated the most artistic of minds. Wordsworth, Constable, Tennyson, Turner and Ruskin; peerless names globally renowned for their interpretations of this majestic landscape. Like them, we take inspiration from the UNESCO World Heritage Site where we've meticulously built a state of the art whisky distillery within a 160-year-old farmstead on the banks of the River Derwent.

Bistro at The Distillery

More than just a distillery

Our bistro in set in what was once our farmsteads’ cattle parlour, which makes sense for a kitchen focused on local produce and honest, hearty flavours. With an emphasis on freshness, flavours and simplicity, we aim to showcase the best regional ingredients.

Our warm welcome in a scenic setting extends from a quick coffee with homemade cake or a leisurely lunch to afternoon tea or three-course supper. You can even dine al-fresco in our beautiful courtyard or take advantage of our stunning garden space outside.
