In 2019 The Lakes Distillery won The World's Best Vodka Award!

The regatta will see over 400 racers attend and spectators from up and down the country visit the area for the week-long event. Guests and competitors can enjoy Welcome Packs containing special offers with the Distillery's compliments worth £50 per person to enjoy relaxation, award winning tours and a culinary experience in our Michelin guide Bistro.
