Darley Abbey Wines/Bar/Distillery
We have pretty much kept the same table spacing as during restrictions. Masks optional, and you can now move about the place. One thing we will be keeping is table service, which has been a bit of a revelation for us & definitely helps with service times during our busiest hours. Please continue to come to the front entrance so we can take you to a table.
You can now book the wine bar inside or outside if you prefer. Although the hope is that now we have extended inside you should just be able to turn up and get a table, at the moment it might still be worth booking on Fridays & Saturdays.
Are now back in full swing. They are now every other Thursday at 7pm in The Cellar Room. Details on our social media, and email.
Darley Abbey Gin
We are now a licensed distillery! We currently have a copper still on its way from Portugal. We are aiming for an end of September 1st production of our own London Dry Gin for sale in the wine bar, The Cottonworks & retail.
The Wine Shop as was, is now looking very much like becoming part of the distillery. We have a retail wine list with regular, seasonal offers available for collection from the bar, or local home delivery, and we will have the wine shop back in December for a Christmas ‘pop-up’
‘Sunday Sessions’ Live Music.
We are now open 2pm until 9pm with live music every Sunday from 4pm. Please see social media/email for details of acts coming up.
Whilst a wine merchant by trade (Est. 2007); in recent years we have added a wine bar with a couple of fires roaring throughout the winter & a 200 year old courtyard which we open up each spring. It is a fairly bustling place full of like-minded souls enjoying a good glass of something, in good company with great music.
We serve fresh hand-made pizza straight from our pizzeria next door in the courtyard.
Both in the wine bar, and our wine shop in the adjacent building, there is inevitably a focus on wine with around 100 wines on the list at any one time. We also have a small but interesting range of Beer (about to be 6 on tap), and many an artisan spirit. If you are a fan of Whisky then the ‘Cage Of Age’ may be of interest!
We have year-round wine tastings (2-3 tastings a month) which are now housed in our wine shop. There’s always at least a couple of hours of informative fun to be had. Most see half a dozen interesting wines tasted alongside accompanying Charcuterie.
We have recently acquired a distillery licence to produce our own Darley Abbey Distillery spirits. Our copper still has arrived from Portugal & we are excited to have our own Darley Abbey Distillery Gin available from November 2021.
For all of the above & probably more; you can find us imbibing away in ‘The Stables’ (built in 1805) within the historic UNESCO Darley Abbey Mills World Heritage Site.
