Eden Brewery's Scrubbers Ale
Lake District Distillery's The One Whisky
Langton's No. 1 Gin
Spirit of the Lakes Standing Stones Vodka

Eden Brewery


We use a very limited edition experimental hop from Charles Faram known as CF-103 to produce Antifreeze, which is heavily hopped and light golden in colour. Antifreeze is very refreshing with a crisp bitterness to finish.


ABV 5.3% / 330ml

Black Jake


Eden Brewery


Black Jake is a classic English porter with a refreshing twist... Brewed with Seville Oranges and Coriander, Black Jake is a very clean and crisp drinking porter, so much so that we would suggest you try it cold... in fact straight from the fridge!


ABV 6.0% / 330ml



Eden Brewery


We use Willamette and Amarillo, with Maris Otter Pale Ale Malt, to create a very light crisp ale which is very refreshing and distinctive.


ABV 5.7% / 330ml

The One Whisky


The Lakes Distillery


Lakes Distillery, close to Bassenthwaite Lake, uses water from the River Derwent to produce their whiskey, which flows down through the peaty foothills which surround Scafell Pike.


ABV 40% /  25ml

Langtons No.1 Gin


Langtons of Skiddaw


Langtons No.1 Gin uses Lake District Juniper and the purest, slate filtered Lake District water to produce an exceptionally bright and

very clear gin.


ABV 40% / 25ml

Standing Stones Vodka


Spirit of the Lakes


After the success of Bedrock Gin, Spirit of the Lakes launched Standing Stones Vodka made using the same Lake District spring water.


ABV 40% / 25ml

Bedrock Gin


Spirit of the Lakes


Spirit of the Lakes created the first Lake District Gin in 2008 using local spring water, a blend of botanicals and a master distiller.


ABV 40% / 25ml
