THE new Lakes Distillery near Bassenthwaite in Cumbria is opening its doors to visitors for the first time.
Its bistro & bar, shop, and tours will open to the public in December this year, but in the meantime it has a pre-opening visitor reception centre.
Situated in the house next to the distillery's site on a former Victorian model farm, the centre will welcome visitors from 11am until 4pm every day, allowing them to find out about the distillery's story so far and have a complimentary English whisky tasting.
Katie Read, Business Development Manager for The Lakes Distillery said: ‘Visits are free of charge, so it's a great excuse to come and see what we're all about.’
Progress at the site is underway with a brand new boiler recently installed and Buttermere and Westmorland slate currently being put into place on the distillery roof. Distillery staff have gone to Spain to oversee production of bespoke casks.
