Ad Gefrin will showcase the Golden Age of the 7th century Northumbrian kings and queens that drew people from all over the world to visit their summer palace at Yeavering just outside of Wooler. In the recreated Great Hall, the lives of the many people that lived and worked in the royal court will be vividly brought to life using cutting-edge immersive AV technology. Displayed alongside will be a number of archaeologically-important artefacts both found at the original site, and borrowed from leading international museums and collections.
Inspired by the same landscape that was home to Anglo Saxon kings and queens, Ad Gefrin will be the home to first Northumbrian English Single Malt Whisky. Crafted from the county’s finest malting barley grown by our own farming partners and the purest Cheviot water pumped up from 200m below our distillery the provenance of our hero spirit will be world class.
Access to the main areas of Ad Gefrin is free, including a bistro celebrating fresh local produce; shop showcasing the very best arts, crafts and gifts that Northumberland has to offer; and grounds within which to pause and relax. In addition, Visitors will have the opportunity to buy tickets for the Great Hall Experience and Tours of the Distillery including a visit to our unique tasting room.
