Set against a backdrop of Cumbrian mountains and nestled next to the scenic Bassenthwaite Lake, you will find The Lakes Distillery.

You will be taken on a tour through the ages, exploring the history of distilling, learning about what makes The Lakes Distillery’s products so special and unique, and of course having a sample of the spirits themselves; their The One whiskey blend, Lakes Vodka and Lakes Gin. 

You might also be tempted to a tipple in the Bistro, which serves signature cocktails alongside a host of locally sourced, generous and tasty dishes from extensive menus ranging from light lunches to three-course suppers.

Taste traditional English food given an added zip with Lake District flavours – Cumbrian cheese and spinach soufflé, for example, or marmalade and whisky pudding.
