A wonderfully unique experience awaits you at the Shed 1 Distillery and Visitor Centre located in the popular market town of Ulverston in the stunning Cumbrian countryside. Launched in 2016 by husband and wife team Andy and Zoe, the multi award-winning distillery produces a fantastic range of micro-batch classically distilled craft gins. In addition the Distillery and Old Calf Shed Bar is open for Make Your Own Gin Experiences, as well as Distillery Tours and Tastings, and a botanical-inspired Afternoon G&T. The venue is also available for weddings and special occasion functions.
An unremarkable shed from the outside, the interior is contemporary and stylish with an abundance of mellow wood, warm lighting, quirky decor and a feature bar which skilfully combine to create a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.
For an Afternoon Tea that’s truly different Andy and Zoe offer an informed tour of the distillery followed by a scrumptious homemade G&T experience. In addition to a couple of G&T’s, botanicals from the gins are incorporated in the delicious scones, shortbread, brownies and tarts! The impressive menu has a further selection of sweet treats plus finger sandwiches with choice of fillings. Recently introduced to the menu is a Gluten Free Afternoon G&T which, unsurprisingly, is proving very popular! Your friendly and knowledgeable hosts and team are more than happy to answer questions regarding food preparation and ingredients. For those who prefer a traditional afternoon tea, there is a great selection of premium teas and coffees supplied locally. Tables are beautifully dressed with lacy table linen and pretty china and tea is served in vintage teapots creating a touch of nostalgia. A truly enjoyable and memorable experience.
“A unique and exciting venue with much to offer the visitor especially gin lovers. The Gluten Free Afternoon Tea is not to be missed and served by friendly and helpful staff.” ..Gluten Free Dining
