My understanding was that the Staveley distillery (owned by Andrew Currie, previously of Arran) wasn't operational as yet. My Father-in-law lives just down the road and sends regular updates as to their (non)progress. It's clearly taken the Lakeland distilery a lot longer than anticipated to get going and St. George's is the "first and only" English Distillery currently operating. Jim Murray mentions this in the 2007 Whisky bible (in ihs review of the year)
