Tours & Tasting
Join us behind the scenes at White Peak Distillery. Experience the unique atmosphere, heat and smells of our working distillery set in the old Johnson & Nephew Wire Works of the 1870s.
Experience our Victorian still house, home to our two beautiful hand-made copper pot stills and our cask stores, to see (and taste) our maturing new make whisky. You’ll be guided through the whisky making process by one of our distillers. Learn about the vision for the first whisky distillery in the Peak District region and gain insights into what we have planned for our single malt whisky. You’ll also get to see ‘Betty’ our 600 litre spirits still, used to make our award winning Shining Cliff gin and other spirits. Then it’s back to the Tasting Room for a guided tasting of our range of gins and a chance for further discussions.
Tour prices: Adult £12 / Children (8-17) £5
Tasting tours are run in groups of up to 16 people and last approximately 90 minutes. Those aged 8 to 17yrs must be accompanied by an adult and can’t take part in tastings. Unfortunately for safety reasons we can’t allow anyone under 8yrs in the Distillery.
Tours take place on:
Thursdays 3pm, Fridays 11am & 3pm, Saturdays 11am
We plan our tours for operational hours but as we are a working distillery with changing schedules, we cannot guarantee that all, or any of the distilling equipment, will be operational at the time of your tour.
Tour vouchers are available to buy in our on-line shop. If you have received a tour voucher please call or e-mail us to book your tour.
If you wish to extend your visit to the area, the Distillery is on the edge of Shining Cliff Woods, an ancient woodland, and site of special scientific interest. The woods are home to the famous Betty Kenny yew tree and numerous walking paths. We have maps of the local area available in the Distillery Shop.
