The Lakes Distillery offers a family-friendly atmosphere and you have the opportunity to visit the Bistro at the Distillery for everything from a light snack to a 3-course a la carte meal! There is also a fluffy herd of alpacas which live onsite and which are definitely worth a visit while you spend time at the Lakes Distillery.
