Cooper King Distillery Guided Tour

Whisky casks


Experience Cooper King Distillery in person by booking onto a guided distillery tour.

1pm and 3.30pm every Saturday, duration 1 hour 15 minutes.

Join us for a guided tour of England’s only self-built whisky and gin distillery, situated in picturesque countryside 10 miles north of York.
Discover the adventurous story behind the distillery and understand how our sustainable spirits are made. We’ll introduce you to state-of-the-art vacuum gin distillation and the wonderful Tasmanian copper pot whisky still – the only one of its kind in the Northern Hemisphere. Finally, enjoy a full guided tasting session in the cosy tasting room and shop.

Drivers will be offered a complimentary sample to take away and enjoy at home. You can find a location map here and the onsite Airbnb here.
Alternatively purchase a distillery tour as a gift or enjoy a Home Tasting Experience.

Tours are currently limited to 10 people. Please check your booking confirmation email for details.
