By Car

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.

As you may be aware the Distillery was  affected by the flooding in the Derwent Valley in November 2019. The Distillery itself is unaffected but the flood waters have sadly damaged the Edwardian-era bridge that you would have otherwise been able to drive across to get to the Distillery.  We do have alternative access across a fully-paved, covered footbridge from the main A6 carpark. It involves a walk of approximately 50 metres, from here you will meet a waiting vehicle to drive you the final 200 metres to the distillery. Unfortunately, this does mean that until the main bridge issues are resolved, access is not possible for wheelchair or scooter users. Please call or e-mail us to discuss any questions around this.

The  tour and tasting itself should be up to our usual enjoyable standards!

By Train
