The Lakes gin is the only gin, distilled in The Lake District, with true provenance.
The distillery is close to Bassenthwaite Lake, in an area of outstanding beauty, and was created by Paul Currie, who co-founded the award winning Arran distillery.
The water used is from the famous River Derwent, with its’ source located high up in the fells.
Juniper foraged from the surrounding Lake District, is at the heart of this gin, along with bilberry, heather, hawthorn, mint and meadowsweet. These join more traditional gin botanicals, from further afield, including Balkan juniper, coriander seeds, orris, angelica, liquorice, lemon and orange and create a complex, artisan gin.
The team have such confidence in the taste of their gin, that they recommend it be chilled over ice and enjoyed neat.
If you do wish to dilute, use tonic only to a ratio of 1:1 and no garnish!
