White Peak Distillery



  • Disabled access - The tour takes in the whole of the Distillery site and you need to be comfortable walking and standing for at least 60 minutes. There are a number of small, shallow steps between some areas, and stairs up to the main production platform which is 21⁄2 metres off the ground. The Distillery and Shop buildings are accessible to wheelchair users except for the main production platform, which has stair access. For anyone unable to access the production platform, the tour will spend approx. 10 minutes up there and from below it is still possible to see the copper stills and other vessels and to potentially also hear the tour guide. Where operational requirements permit, we will endeavour to have a member of the Distillery team spend time separately with anyone unable to access the platform. Unfortunately our Distillery environment is not suitable for the blind. If you have any queries about accessibility, please e-mail
