The Lakes Distillery

Combine a stay at The Borrowdale Gates Hotel with a tour of The Lakes Distillery. The Lakes Distillery is nestled in the corner of the beautiful Bassenthwaite Lake.

Paul Currie’s vision was to create one of the leading malt spirits in the world, alongside offering one of the most unique visitor experiences in the Lake District. From a Victorian cattle farm to a world-class production facility of quality spirits, the creation of this unique venue was truly a labour of love.

Every detail has been carefully constructed to support the dream – from the restoration of the buildings through to the technology and hardware used to create the spirits themselves.

Nearby Upper Borrowdale is reputed to have the highest levels of rainfall in England. It is fortunate for us that a great deal of that rainfall finds its way into the River Derwent, from which we draw our water.The river flows 25 miles from its source near Sprinkling Tarn, through peaty fells, on through Derwentwater and Bassenthwaite Lake, then literally past our door and onto the sea at Workington, 14 miles away from the Distillery.The Derwent is a ‘spate’ (very fast flowing) river, at the whim of the weather. All that rain makes it one of the fastest flowing rivers in Europe ensuring the waters of the Derwent are continually filtered and flushed through.

The Lakes Distillery is a driving force behind a revolution of ‘new world’ whisky distilleries. As an English distillery based in the heart of the Lake District, our contemporary family of brands have to speak for themselves.

Their signature spirit, the Lakes Malt, will not be released for general sale until 2018. In the meantime you can sample the one and only British Isles blended whisky named the ONE, and the Lakes Gin (the only gin with true Cumbrian provenance). The Lakes Vodka is the only vodka produced in The Lake District.

Experience the excitement of a working distillery – see ‘behind the scenes’ of the heat, the smell and the buzz of England’s largest award-winning whisky distillery. Take a sensory tour backstage and walk amongst the sleeping spirit in our atmospheric cask warehouse. The Lakes Distillery offers a family friendly atmosphere – stop off in the cafe and say hello to our family of resident alpacas!

Other packages such as the Tasting Tour and the Stillman Masterclass can be undertaken during your day at the Distillery.
