The Lakes Distillery opened in December 2014 and is based at a refurbished model farm, nestled on the north shore of Bassenthwaite Lake in Cumbria. The main barn houses the mash house and still house, with unique stills carefully designed to produce the spirits on a small artisan scale. An old cattle shed has been converted into the warehouse. The head whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi states that his sole intention is to "make whisky which expresses The Lakes through flavour". The Lakes Distillery produces a range range of spirits, which alongside single malt include gin, flavoured gins, vodka, and blended whisky. A destination well worth a visit when you are next in Cumbria.
