Top six English whisky producers

The Lakes Distillery

LakesDistilleryTouted as England’s largest distillery, The Lakes Distillery is based on a renovated 1850s Victorian model farm next to the Bassenthwaite Lake in the Lake District National Park, Cumbria. The company has already launched a blend of whisky using liquid from across the British Isles – The One – and is currently distilling and ageing its own stocks.

The brainchild of former Isle of Arran Distillers co-founder Paul Currie and former Dewar’s master distiller Chris Anderson, The Lakes Distillery can produce up to million bottles of lightly peated single malt whisky each year, in addition to gin and vodka. The first 100 casks of whisky produced each year will also be set aside exclusively for Founders’ Club members.

  1. Thanks for this interesting overview. Rarely someone speaks about English whisky distilleries.

  2. Brian Steer says:

    I splashed out on the Cotswold Distillery Dry Gin, their, Single Malt, the Apple Brandy, and the collection of three spirits, at cask strength. The Gin and Single malt are very good, and worth the money. I have yet to try the others I bought, but I would recommend a visit.

  3. What about Wharf Distillery?
