The Lakes Distillery

The Lake District is one of the most beautiful areas of the country. It is full of rolling hills, rugged mountain tops, and an abundance of lakes. Well, to be honest, there is only one official lake in the National Park – the rest are ‘waters’ or ‘meres’ for example: Bassenthwaite is the only body of water termed ‘lake’. It is this particular lake, 8 miles north east of Keswick that excites us though as this is to be the site of the first whisky distillery in the Lake District for well over 100 years; The Lakes Distillery.
