Whisky Stargazing Evening

Whisky Stargazing Evening

Saturday 4th May 2024 from 21:00pm to 23:00pm

The Lakes Distillery
Setmurthy , Cockermouth, Cumbria, CA13 9SJ, North West England

To celebrate the launch of Galáxia, the brand new single malt whisky, we invite you to join us at the distillery for an evening of stargazing and whisky tasting.

Cosy next to our fire pits and enjoy a tutored tasting of Galáxia alongside rare archived whiskies from The Whiskymaker’s Editions series.

Guided by local astronomer Neill Sanders, we will look beyond the horizon to the Lake District National Park’s dark skies from our garden outside The Whiskymaker’s House. Once the Sun has set, experience incredible views of the cosmos using large-aperture telescopes.

Your evening will be complemented by a locally sourced cheeseboard and paired chocolates. Booking is required.

Please note that this has already taken place on 04/05/2024

Event darkness

The Moon has a big impact on the visibility of celestial bodies in the night sky. Try to plan your stargazing when there is no bright Moon at night as this is when the skies will be at their darkest.

The below chart shows if and when the skies will be at their darkest during this event. Moonlight is shown in light yellow and the Sun's twilight in light blue. Midnight on the date shown is shown as a white line with sunset to the left and sunrise the next morning to the right. A black background with stars shows the best times for stargazing.
