It's finally here

Eat. Drink. Distil.


Now Open

Find us at 29 Parkway, Parkway Shopping Centre, Newbury. RG14 1AY.

In May 2022, we officially opened Eat.Drink.Distil. This offers a totally new and exciting experience to Newbury Berkshire and a new chapter in the adventures of the 137 Distillery.

The distillery has moved and is expanding its headquarters and operational home to the heart of Parkway Shopping Centre in Newbury, West Berkshire.

Eat.Drink.Distil will bring together food, drinks and a unique experience to the West Berkshire area.

  • Eat will encompass a brand-new menu of fresh and tasty treats.
  • Drink. Grab a morning coffee, a lunchtime pitstop, or cocktails and tastings after dark. This area of the brand will be headed up by our London trained mixologist who currently leads as Senior Brand Ambassador for Lumber.
  • Distil. The award-winning distillery will fully relocate the new site, at the heart of Eat. Drink. Distil and you’ll no doubt catch a regular glimpse of Lumber and the team hard at work on the copper stills. “Laima”, the original and currently the only still used for distillation will remain in action and take pride of place behind the bar. To join her is some new kit which will allow additional production now needed due to growing demand, and to better manage the increase in requests for collaborations and contract distilling commitments.

The new facility will also be home to a brand-new gin school, completing the experience and bringing something different to Newbury.

Combining our love of food, passion for craft spirits and commitment to local producers and businesses, this venture is a natural progression for us and we’re proper chuffed that it’s all coming together.

When one door closes…

Today sees the official announcement about Lumbers Distillers and the future of 137 Distillery. As exciting as change is, it’s also some of the hardest decisions to make. I remember back in 2012 when I signed up to a 10 year lease here at The Newbury that this town would always have a place in […]
