Ulverston’s multi award-winning Gin Distillery.
From Garden Shed to The Old Calf Shed offering Cumbria’s only Make Your Own Gin Experiences!
We, Andy and Zoe Arnold-Bennett, launched Shed 1 Distillery in October 2016 in our garden shed. We create classically distilled, contemporary-style Gins, traditional strength Gin Elixirs, and Gin Marmalade.
We moved to our new home in October 2019. The Old Calf Shed has a stylish visitor bar/shop with a fabulous view of the iconic Ulverston Pepperpot. Many visitors have enjoyed Gin Tastings, Afternoon G&Teas and, Make Your Own Gin Experiences. You can also hire the space for private events and celebrations. In June, 2020, we became a licensed Wedding Venue and we look forward to welcoming gin lovers to tie the knot in the Distillery and The Old Calf Shed Bar.
Online orders include free, nationwide postage. We are also able to post to many parts of the world.
We offer Click and Collect from the Shed for all our products and Afternoon G&Teas. Delivery in the local area is available.
We have re-opened the Shed to Gin Experiences. With one social bubble at a time and us as your hosts, you can relax with a G&T and learn more about the World of Gin. Booking is essential.
