White Peak Distillery

A Derbyshire Distillery Becomes A Reality


Sometime back in 2016, the founder of White Peak Distillery Max Vaughan started a project. He had for quite a while, a desire to make Whisky and other spirits in the county of Derbyshire, UK. However, with little experience in the drinks trade, no licence, little funding, no staff and no premises he began to pull everything together to make his dream come true.

Now, several years later, Max has successfully established the White Peak Distillery, located in Ambergate, Derbyshire. More than that he has also set up a shop based in Wirksworth and also has an online store (see details) where you can purchase any of the products.

It’s a story that worth reading on the White Peak Distillery website!

That’s the spirit

There are some fine looking Sets available which are perfect for gifting. Along with a wonderful assortment of flavoured gins from the ‘Shining Cliff’ range.

Fancy a nice malt whisky or some rum, you’ll find those too!

Take your time to read the descriptions to see how they differ from the usual mass manufactured spirits. Also, check out the awards.
