The Lakes Distillery, established in 2011, nestles on the north shore of Bassenthwaite Lake.

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 our distillery has been built meticulously within a 160-year-old farmstead on the banks of the River Derwent.

Sculpted into the very bedrock of our distillery, the quatrefoil represents our core beliefs, Faith, Hope, Luck and Love. They are the compass points of our journey, shared by like-minded adventurers in their creative approach to fine whiskies, gins and vodka, and the rewards of its discovery at the intersection of art, science and nature. “
