Gin Experiences at Shed One

Silver Winner: Visit England: Experience of the Year, 2023
Winner: Cumbria Tourism Awards: Experience of the Year, 2022

Welcome to Shed One Distillery and Visitor Centre. We’re situated on the outskirts of the Lake District, in the lovely market town of Ulverston, Cumbria. Who are we? Husband and wife team, Andy and Zoe Arnold-Bennett. We launched Shed One in October, 2016, from our 7x7 foot garden shed.

Three years later we moved the gin distillery to our new premises, just a stone’s throw away. What’s great about the Shed One's new home is that we have enough space for a Visitor Centre. Here, you can join us on a Tour of our Gin Distillery with Gin Tastings.

If you’re interested in making your own gin you can! We’re the first gin distillery in Cumbria and the Lake District to offer Make Your Own Gin experiences.

There's also plenty of car parking space and we're wheelchair-friendly throughout. Please note: all experiences must be booked. Experiences are hosted by us, the owners and distillers. You can find out more about our Gin Experiences by clicking on the links above (and at the bottom of the page).


Afternoon G&Tea

Do you like sweet treats with your gin? We’ve created a botanical-inspired Afternoon G&Tea made up of scones, finger sandwiches and sweet treats that include some of the botanicals we use in our gin making. For example, our Chocolate Cake includes orange zest and a few chilli flakes with a cardamom icing, all found in our Chilli Fest Gin.

Our lavender and strawberry shortbread shortbread is covered with rose icing and strawberry pieces; lavender, rose and strawberry are botanicals found in our Shed Loads of Love Gin. Zoe also makes her own Lemon and Lime Curd for the mini meringue tarts.

As for our Scones, they have a juniper glaze brushed over the top which gives a lovely, ginny taste.

The delicious loose leaf teas and coffees are supplied by Kendal's award-winning Penningtons Coffee Roasters and Tea Merchants who ethically source their coffee.

The Visitor Centre with its bar, stylish look and fabulous view of Ulverston’s iconic Pepperpot is perfect for a party.
