Following a £9m investment and three years in development, The Lakes Distillery opened in December 2014 in The Lake District National Park (now a UNESCO World Heritage Site) with the vision of producing world class spirits that will be globally recognised and respected.

Since then, the Distillery has become one of Cumbria’s leading award-winning tourist attractions.

Housed in a beautifully renovated 1850s Victorian model farm, The Lakes Distillery offers an interactive tour which includes a tasting of their award-winning spirits.

The distillery crafts a portfolio of world-class spirits including the Lakes Gin, Lakes Vodka and the ONE ‘and only’ British Isles Blended Whisky, all of which showcase the spirit of Cumbria.
