Distillery & Tours

TWO UNIQUE VENUES

Our distillery is based across two gorgeous old buildings, 5 minutes drive apart within the Peak District National Park.

The Forest Distillery is a 17th Century stone barn nestled in Macclesfield Forest. Surrounded by nature, and with our own ancient spring producing a constant supply of fresh water. Our distillery is a beautiful old building, daily distilling spirits of the very purest quality.

We have a bar within the distillery, which we open to the public most weekday afternoons. We’re occasionally hampered by snow and only have a very small team here, so it is always best to check before visiting.

We offer regular distillery tours at weekends and would love to host you here. Because of our size, we can only release a few tickets at a time and they do tend to sell out very fast. Please see below to book.


The Cat & Fiddle, sitting at 1689 feet, will be Britain’s highest altitude Whisky Distillery.

We’ve been renovating the old building for the past 12 months and hope to move our whisky still here in late 2020. Until then, we have a lovely little take-out shop, and again, host the most intimate tours and tastings every week within the old pub. Full details below:

Location: Forest Distillery | 2 Hour tour | £20(+fees) per person | Must be pre-booked
