    What an amazing place. Found by accident on a recent visit to Ulverston but definitely on our returns wish list. Lovely hosts and great gins. Afternoon tea and gin tasting to be booked for next visit ☺️
    We love our "refuge from the world", so glad you found us. We look forward to hosting you for Afternoon G&Tea.

    Fantastic Afternoon of Gin Tlasting and Making
    A fantastic afternoon tasting and making gin. We were made to feel so welcome and our experience included afternoon tea, with delicious cakes and scones. We learned a lot but also had lots of fun and felt very merry when we left. Would definitely recommend. Thank you for a great time 😊
    So good to host you at Shed One. Hope to see you again. Cheers!

    Amazing gin distillery
    We were on holiday in the Lake District and saw a bottle of shed 1 gin in a supermarket & noticed it was made locally. After a quick search we decided to pay them a visit. We received a very warm friendly welcome and immediately felt at home. After a few tastings we chose 2 bottles to purchase. The choice was fairly difficult as all of their gins were outstanding. After a very funny incident with the card reader (it wouldn't connect) we were then asked to be food tasters for a most excellent shortbread and a even better strawberry posset. We will definitely recommend to everyone visiting the lake District to take the time to walk through the doors of this very fine gin distillery.
    The joys of technology! Thank you for your patience, and your lovely review. Cheers!

    Fun evening with delicious gins!
    Oh my goodness, what a wonderful experience. If you are in Ulverston and you like gin then I would definitely recommend a visit to Shed One. Andy was a great host, very personable, enthusiastic and knowledgable. Excellent value for money, the gins were delicious and they’ve won many awards. I can’t say enough good things! We loved it!
    It was great to host you at Shed One! Hope to see you again for another gin experience. Take care, Cheers!

Fantastic gin tasting and afternoon tea experience. The hosts Zoe and Andy made us feel really welcome. It was great fun to taste all the different gins and learn about the different botanicals. The afternoon tea was brilliant. Excellent scones and gin themed cakes and a choice of different teas. We had a wonderful afternoon. This place really does deserve all its awards.

This place is awesome. If you've ever been given the 'after making my fortune in the City I thought I'd make gin' treatment, then Shed 1 is the perfect antidote. We met the owners who could not have been more courteous, welcoming and enthusiastic. The fact that our large dog had brought some of the torrential rain from outdoors into the shop didn't dampen their spirits. It is truly a treat when the story is backed up by a great product, and Shed 1's numerous awards make this a must visit.

What an amazing experience to share with my brother for his 50th birthday. From start to finish the entire day was thoroughly enjoyable and informative. Not only did I learn a lot more about making gin but I also got to take home my own bottle. Andrew and Zoe are wonderful hosts who take you on a journey that is relaxed and fun. They guide you through the entire process without taking over and you definitely come up with your own gin. We tried various gins and combined with the afternoon tea made for a lovely day. I would totally recommend the experience.
