The main site entrance / car park is accessed directly from the A6 (Matlock Road) and the postcode DE56 2HE should bring you direct to the site entrance.
The Distillery forms part of a wider industrial site. There is a security gatehouse manned 24 hours a day in the main car park. Whilst the site is often not busy, there may be HGVs and other vehicles manoeuvring in the main car park, so please take care. The speed limit on site is a maximum of 10mph at all times.
The Distillery has its own car park for 15 cars and there is on-site signage directing you to this from the main site car park. From the main entrance, the route is over a bridge that crosses the River Derwent and then turn right through a set of gates beyond the bridge. From these gates, the Distillery entrance is approx. 100 metres up a made road on the right hand side (if you end up in the woods you’ve gone too far!). Please note that the made road is also a public right of way and there could be walkers / mountain bikers / horses using the route. Site signage directs you to STOP at the gates and maintain a maximum speed of 10mph to respect the safety of others.
Ambergate train station is a 10 minute walk from the Distillery and located on the Derwent Valley Line. Journeys can be made from stations in Matlock, Derby and Nottingham and the stations along those lines. For details of train times and engineering works use the contact details below.
