White Peak Distillery has been producing the regions first single malt whisky since May 2018. Our family run distillery is focussed on the craft of the distiller, doing things in small batches by hand, feel, taste and smell.

The Distillery is built on the tradition of the copper pot still and the influence that the still has on our spirit. With minimal automation, it’s about developing a deep understanding of how all our equipment works and how each stage of the process contributes to the spirits that qualify for the bottle.

Our doors are open to visitors during our weekly bookable tours. During the tour you’ll have the opportunity to experience the unique atmosphere, heat and smells of our working distillery set in the former Victorian maintenance and store sheds of Johnson & Nephew Wire Works on the edge of the river Derwent within the Derwent Valley World Heritage Site and gateway to the peaks. 

We’ll take you behind the scenes in our still house, home to our two beautiful hand-made copper stills, and in our cask storage areas to see (and taste) our maturing new make whisky. You’ll be guided through the whisky making process by one of our knowledgeable distillers and learn about the vision for Derbyshire’s first whisky distillery. You’ll also get to see ‘Betty’ our 600 litre spirits still, used to make our award winning Shining Cliff gin and other spirits. Then it’s back to the Tasting Room for a taste of our range of gins and a chance for further discussion.

During your visit you can explore our beautiful woodland location. Shining Cliff Woods boasts numerous walking paths, and is a designated site of special scientific interest and also  home to the famous Betty Kenny yew tree which features on our Shining Cliff gin bottles. Cromford canal is also a short walk away. We have waterproof maps of the local area available to buy in the Distillery Shop, along with hot & cold drinks.
