Tours and Extra Tastings

Details

Get a glimpse behind the scenes of a working distillery and discover how the Lakes whisky, gin and vodka are made. You will enjoy spectacular helicopter footage of the journey from the source of the River Derwent to the distillery, housed in a beautifully renovated 1850s cattle parlour. Explore the stillroom with expert tour guides and discover the cask warehouse where the Lakes malt rests, maturing to perfection for release in 2018. You will enjoy a personalised, in-depth tutored tasting (limited to only 8 people), where you will be taught how to nose the spirits, judging character, colour and taste. You will sample five spirits selected from their range, including limited and special additions. You may wish to accompany your tour with lunch in the award-winning Bistro or take a short stroll nearby to the stunning Bassenthwaite Lake.
