AWESOME CRAFT GIN, BEER, & CIDER
Our gins are distilled with fresh fruit and exotic botanicals, to create three signature flavours:
Blood Orange, and
Our spirits are 37.5% gins - i.e. full strength, proper gin, rather than “gin liqueurs”.
Unlike many small distilleries our gins are 100% made and bottled by us, from scratch, here in Grasmere village. We start with soft Cumbrian water, ferment a wash, distil our own vodka, and then finally distil our dry house gin. Our product is unique, and 100% manufactured here in the English Lake District.
We do not use artificial colours, chemical flavours, or other wierd additives!
We also brew a wide range of beers and ciders, from traditional ales to lagers, and more experimental brews. We change the drinks on tap at the pub regularly.
Grasmere Brewery's brews change with the seasons!
Our water comes from Lakeland reservoirs. It is extremely soft water: 1.68 on the clark scale.
Grasmere Brewery's beers are cold-conditioned, & served bright & beautiful in the old English way.
Are you a pub, hotel, or off-licence, wanting to stock our drinks?
If you would like to stock our beer, cider, or spirits - please read on.
We work with a small number of landlords and retailers, and we are priced competitively versus national brands. We believe that "craft" should mean local & awesome - not expensive.
Right now, however, we are so busy that there is a waiting list for permanent installs of our beer & cider.
1) We do not offer "guest" or one-off barrels.
2) We only install kegs where there is professional refrigeration i.e. a cold cellar or fridge.
3) If you want wholesale gin or spirits, please call McClures of Windermere on 015394 42636.
