Distinctively zesty pink grapefruit vigour meets the resounding juniper notes of The Lakes Gin. Gently distilled for exceptional smoothness.
Bursting with uplifting citrus notes and refreshingly tangy pink grapefruit flavour. Distilled in traditional copper pot stills and only drawing the purest water from the Lake District National Park.
Serve over ice with Mediterranean Tonic Water – no garnish required. Alternatively try a sprig of herbal rosemary to complement the fresh grapefruit flavour.
The Lakes Distillery in Cockermouth is within the Lake District National Park in the north of England. It is the first distillery operating in the Lakes for over 100 years. Paul Currie was a veteran of the Scottish Whisky industry and saw the potential in the area. After renovating an old dairy farm they were able to bring that vision to reality. Together with whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi they set about creating a unpeated, sherried whisky that was distinctive for the place, and continue to create and innovate through new editions.
Inspired by the majestic Lake District National Park, their gin collection is a showcase of exquisite taste, discerning sourcing and an exacting process of elimination. With a long, slow and gentle distillation in a traditional copper pot still, it is an exceptionally smooth London dry style gin, designed to stand the test of time.
Using only a select few botanicals, they achieve flavour precision, ensuring every nuance is pitch perfect and crystal clear on the palate. Less is more.
