The Forest Distillery My Hotel Break Review

The Forest Whisky & Gin Distillery ? a fantastic visitor attraction to experience when on a hotel break in the Peak District


We recently worked with myhotelbreak when they visited the distillery. Find out what they experienced in this guest blog edition:

We really enjoy visiting the picturesque region of the Peak District. With the wonders of the Pennines rolling hills there is so much to see and do. Some of our guests who were staying in our hotels in the Peak District and had mentioned they had visited the intriguing Forest Distillery nearby. We had done some background into and thought it was a great place to visit during our hotel break in this scenic setting.

Let?s find out more?

As avid gin connoisseurs we had heard this was a great place to come to sample some amazing gins. We had heard from others this was a real secret gem of an attraction and they were right. Set within a magical setting of the Peak District National Park we were impressed from the outset with the romantic setting of the distillery housed in a 17th century barn.


We were really keen to take a tour and thankfully we booked ahead for the weekend as only a few slots are released at a time. It was a special occasion as if was one of the team?s birthdays and we thought a gin tour was the perfect way to celebrate together.

The tour was really fantastic. The guides were so much fun and knowledgeable too. We had quite a few questions on Forest Gin and we were really impressed with the in-depth knowledge our guide had.? Our discussion on gin in general was really satisfying. We found out loads on the history of gin and the general ethos here at the distillery.


What was really intriguing for us we were trying the premium Forest Gin and around us were all the ingredients they used to create it. This was truly special. This family-owned distillery also distills very high quality English Whisky, and we will definitely return soon to experience how they distill and mature whisky.

This is a wonderful place to come as part of your overall trip to the Peak District. Set in a scenic setting create new memories on your next trip by visiting the Forest Gin and Whisky Distillery in Macclesfield Forest.
