About company

White Peak Distillery a new craft whisky and spirit company based in Derbyshire and located in a UNESCO World Heritage Site at a gateway to the Peak District National Park. We’re focused on producing authentic, small batch spirits that are unique to, and speak of, the location / region with honesty / passion / attention to detail. We’re uncompromising in our approach to product quality. We’re a team that is building the foundations for the future of craft spirits in The Peak District.

The distillery is built on the tradition of the copper pot still (manufactured in Scotland), with ‘hand-crafted’ small batch production, honouring British heritage for whisky distillation, whilst emphasising a progressive direction and core values of local, hand-crafted, small batch distillation by people who are passionate about their craft.


The ancient woodland of Shining Cliff, where the Distillery has its home, was the inspiration for our original floral-style Derbyshire dry gin. We sought a style of gin that reflects this beautiful location. The woodland and hedgerows we walk and cycle past daily offer up an abundance of seasonal botanicals from woodland berries to delicate mayflower.

Our Floral gin is made from 13 botanicals, which we vapour distill to ensure we capture all of the delicate flavours. The finished result is a complex yet perfectly balanced, smooth dry gin, with a wonderful floral nose. Our Shining Cliff gin range also includes Citrus, Spiced and Bakewell Pud.


We set out to do something unique in the Peak District region where whisky had never before been made. This hasn’t meant throwing out traditions that have stood the test of time but we want to put down our marker. We take our time to create our spirit from English barley using a unique yeast blend with links to Derbyshire’s brewing heritage.
