News from White Peak Distillery

Like everyone, we've spent the last few weeks adjusting to the new ground rules. Having had to close the Distillery shop and postpone our tours and other events in mid-March, we've focused our efforts online and with local delivery. And we would like to say a big thank you to all our supporters!

Celebrate the Big Book Weekend in Derby

As the Big Book Weekend approaches, Derby is getting a real appetite for reading following a huge rise in the number of people accessing eBooks for free from the city's online library services.

Although the city's libraries remain closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic, members are still able to access eBooks, eMagazines, eAudiobooks and the eReference library. New members can join online and receive a temporary ticket which gives them access to online services too.
