Well worth it

We really enjoyed the tour. Dave, one of the distillers, is obviously knowledgeable bit also passionate about the business and what the products they produce. Obviously it's quite small, so not the longest tour but definitely worth while.
The tasting was good too, and I'm looking forward to the the whiskey being ready

This is the most informative whiskey tour we have ever been on. You can see Max and Claire Vaughn's passion to create a new whiskey in every aspect of production in this new distillery; followed by a very informative tasting! The six of us had a fabulous afternoon. We booked a bottle for the first whiskey release in February 2022, and took home the 1876 cocktail to keep us going till then - its delicious!

The best distillery visit we have ever done and that includes speyside whiskey and Irish bush mills. The visit was made by exceptional technical knowledge of our guide Dave

Super hour spent on the informative distillery tour led by Dave. Tasting glass included in the price and a fascinating insight to brewing.

Excellent tour and tasting session. Very knowledgable guide. Beautifully adapted industrial buildings. A visit not to be missed.

All in all, a tribute to the creators and staff of the distillery.

Purchased for 70th Birthday gift, had a brilliant time! Dave was a fantastic tour guide of the old wire works and distillery! Really interesting, and fun. The Gin tasting was delicious- thanks!

Cracking visit today. Booked as a Father’s Day treat before lockdown it was good to get back to doing something normal. Dave gave us a great tour around the ex-wire works brilliantly transformed into a craft distillery. Remember the brewer’s yeast and you’ll learn something. You’ll get an insight into whisky distilling as well as a description of how the White Peak started with their delicious gin. The tour finishes with a degustation of a variety of whiskies and then an opportunity to buy some gin (and as from Feb 22), whisky. Thanks to the team for a grand afternoon.
