The Lakes Distillery, established in 2011, nestles on the north shore of Bassenthwaite Lake.
The majestic surroundings near Keswick inspire the artistic ethos and ranges of fine whiskies, gins and vodka. Visitors enjoy tours of the state-of-the-art distillery and tastings of award-winning spirits.
The Lake District has long been a crucible for creativity, a place in which the imagination can flourish, and it’s no different for Dhavall Gandhi. The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker takes his inspiration from the UNESCO World Heritage Site where a state-of-the-art distillery has been built meticulously within a 160-year-old farmstead on the banks of the River Derwent.
Sculpted into the very bedrock of the distillery, a quatrefoil represents The Lakes Distillery’s core beliefs. Faith, Hope, Luck and Love are the compass points of their journey, shaped by like-minded adventurers who appreciate their creative approach to whisky making and the rewards of its discovery at the intersection of art, science and nature.
