The Langdale Owners' Club

The Lakes Distillery

Indulge your love for whisky with a deep dive into the dance between science and art, control and creativity.

Our tour and picnic work perfectly here, combining a scenic view of both the river mouth and famous Thompson Holme island with the luxury of having your own space to dry off and enjoy some food with a view.

Enjoy a multi-sensory journey through our distillery before a guided tasting of the finest Lakes whisky. Every adult ticket includes £5 off to spend against any 70cl in store.

Discover our holistic approach to whisky-making and see first-hand how each individual element is part of a continuum, a net of flavour possibilities where everything is inter-linked.

With a focus on distillation, maturation and the art of blending, you will learn about élevage and how the alchemy of perfumers influences our philosophy.

After uncovering the way we express ideas, emotions and feelings through the language of whisky, a visit to The Whiskymaker’s House offers the chance to taste five Lakes whiskies, including:

  • An unreleased single malt whisky cask sample
  • The Lakes Single Malt Whisky.
  • The Lakes new make spirit.


Adults only (18+): Usual Ticket Price £25
