The Lakes Distillery toasts with a double

The Lakes Distillery toasts with a double

The Lakes Distillery is celebrating after being awarded two TripAdvisor Certificates of Excellence this week.

The award-winning attraction received the accolades for its distillery tours and for The Bistro at The Distillery – its food and drink offering which is featured in the Michelin Guide.

Launched in December 2014, the distillery is Cumbria’s first whisky distillery for over 100 years and is home to The Lakes Malt (currently maturing), The Lakes Vodka and The Lakes Gin.

It is also the creator of The One, a blended whisky made using fine whiskies from around the British Isles. It offers daily tours that trail the journey of creation from source to spirit, culminating in an indulgent tasting session.

Maria Duddin, events, business development and PR manager for distillery, said: “The Bistro’s reputation as the place to eat in Cumbria is evident from these great accolades from our guests. 

“We will continue to challenge the norm this year with guest chef nights, Whisky and Gin infused food pairings and our renowned Steak Club.

“It is a real honour to receive such great recognition from TripAdvisor, especially when it’s hot on the heels of us being number one choice on Open Table and we are only half way through the year!”
