The Lakes Distillery

Who they are …

Housed in a beautifully restored farm close to Bassenthwaite Lake, The Lakes Distillery opened in December 2014. Their vision was to produce world-class spirits that will be global brands recognised and respected around the world.

Their range of premium spirits now include whisky, vodka, gin and a range of liqueurs.

We have worked with The Lakes Distillery for many years now. Last year visited their premises and enjoyed a tour and tasting. Read our story.

Chris Pateman, head of off-trade & grocery says: “It is wonderful to work with such a well-known Cumbrian family run business such as Pioneer. Giving us the opportunity to reach such a variety of customers across the region which are so well connected with their customers.”

The Lakes Distillery spirits are elegantly branded and certainly bring the wow factor to any drinks shelf!

The vodka and gin liqueurs are new additions to the range and these are fantastic either served straight with ice, or why not get inventive with your cocktails? For inspiration and ideas, visit the cocktail section of their website.
