Shed 1 Distillery
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. All experiences are hosted by us and include a Distillery Tour.
Look out for our Crafternoons, including Candle-Making, Printing, Make Your Own Face Creams and more. All crafternoons are led by professionals and include sweet treats and a couple of G&Ts.
You can hire the Shed for private events and celebrations, and we are a licensed Wedding Venue, specialising in Gin Elopements.
We are a net zero, climate positive, green small business.
Online orders include free, nationwide postage.
