Following a £9m investment and three years in development, The Lakes Distillery opened in December 2014 in The Lake District National Park with the vision of producing world class spirits that will be global brands recognised and respected around the world.
Our first spirit offering was The ONE, a unique blended whisky containing mix of the best whiskies from around the British Isles. We also produce The Lakes Gin and The Lakes Vodka, whilst our eagerly-awaited Lakes Malt whisky will be launched in 2018.
Our site offers interactive distillery tours and an attractive visitor’s centre with the option to dine at the highly acclaimed Bistro at the Distillery. After only one year, we have already built up an outstanding reputation, winning many highly acclaimed awards.
In July 2015, we were officially opened by HRH The Princess Royal with the Deputy Lord Lt. of Cumbria Charles in attendance.
