Lakes Distillery

Lakes Distillery wins top award by VisitEngland

Lifestyle

The Lakes Distillery is now ranked among the finest visitor attractions in the country, after picking up a prestigious award from VisitEngland. The Cumbria-based whisky producer has been awarded the prestigious Gold Accolade following a recent inspection from the country’s leading tourism agency.

The gold ranking has been awarded to just 21 attractions, with The Lakes Distillery featuring alongside HM Tower of London and Chester Zoo. It recognises the exceptionally high standards achieved to meet VisitEngland’s Visitor Attraction Quality Scheme, which involves a scoring system based on an annual unannounced assessment by VisitEngland.

Introduced in 2014, the scheme scrutinises those things which matter most to visitors, including customer service and catering and facilities, while aiming to recognise attractions that go the extra mile to create an enjoyable and memorable visitor experience.

The Lakes Distillery is the only distillery in the country, and the only attraction in Cumbria to receive a Gold accolade this year, among members which include museums, galleries, historic houses, churches, cathedrals and country parks.

The Lakes Distillery started trading three years ago and has already produced 600,000 bottles of whisky worth £30million at retail. It has won numerous prestigious awards and introduced a number of Gin and Vodka brands, as well as a unique blended whisky, all on sale in high street outlets in the UK and in major export markets, including the Far East and Australia.
