New whisky and gin distillery joins Peterborough development

Plans for the new distilleryNene Distillery are set to take over the Grade II-listed Goods Shed at development site, Fletton Quays, turning the building into a high end restaurant and distillery. A planning application is set to be submitted early this year to refurbish the existing building and extend the facilities.

Tours will be available of the new site, including a showcase of the working distillery and tastings of the spirits produced on site alongside a whisky vault showcasing world-class whiskies from around the globe. The proposed development will also include a distillery museum, gift shop, and unique virtual reality experience where visitors will be taken into an immersive experience of distilling illicit moonshine in the American Deep South during prohibition.

Visitors will be able to enjoy locally sourced artisan food in the restaurant which complements the distillery. Cookery master classes will also be offered using local produce.
