    White Peak Distillery

    Established in 2016, White Peak Distillery is the first full-scale, craft distillery in the Peak District region.


    Established in 2016, White Peak Distillery is the first full-scale, craft distillery in the Peak District region, founded by local couple, Max & Claire Vaughan. The Distillery is located in the former Johnson & Nephew Wire Works in Ambergate and celebrates the rich riverside and industrial landscape of the Derwent Valley Mills World Heritage Site. The Distillery backs onto the ancient woodland of Shining Cliff, which is a Site of Special Scientific Interest. As well as being at a gateway to the Peak District, the location offers access to some wonderful local woodland walks, and to footpaths that follow the Cromford Canal to Cromford Mills.

    A visit to the Distillery is underscored by the passion the team has for authentic craft spirits and their unique destination for whisky, gin and other spirits. You’ll have an opportunity to learn a bit of the history of the Wire Works (originally established in 1876). On the Distillery tasting tours you’re able to sample Derbyshire's first single malt - Wire Works Whisky, as well as a range of Shining Cliff gins and a Derbyshire Cask Aged Rum. For more information about visiting the Distillery, to book a tour, or to shop Derbyshire craft spirits, please visit the website.
