WELCOME TO WHARF DISTILLERY - Northamptonshire's only distillery.

We are an independent small-batch copper-pot distillery producing a range of exciting spirits and liqueurs from raw materials: grain for our whisky, single malts, gin and vodka, and local fruit for our brandies and apple-based liqueurs and aperitifs.

We pride ourselves on crafting quality products from our beautiful farm location in the heart of the South Northamptonshire countryside, and welcome everyone to come and see how it is all done on our three hand-beaten copper pot stills from Portugal. Alongside our distillery we have a cidery producing traditional ciders, a tap room to sample and enjoy our products, and a deli with lots of wonderful locally sourced foods and drink.

Our location is part of the Wakefield Country Courtyard which is home to a number of other interesting shops including a tea room, art studio, home & gift store. Click here for more details of who you will find in the courtyard.

We host lots of foodie events throughout the year at the distillery from pop-up restaurants to wood-fired pizza evenings and tutored wine tastings. Keep an eye on our Facebook page, or sign up to our newsletter. If you don't live close by then please browse our shop here to see what we have to offer.

Thank you for visiting our site.
