Your #SpiritOfSummer Snaps! | The Lakes Distillery Your #SpiritOfSummer Snaps! – The Lakes Distillery

Earlier this month we set you all the task of taking your Lakes bottle on adventures, and we were not disappointed!

From the hiking in the Lakes, to relaxing on a tropical beach, your Lakes bottles have done it all! We’re so happy that you’re enjoying your holidays (…and a little bit jealous!). The summer is not yet over, but we wanted to celebrate our spirits taking the world by storm…

So, what exactly have our spirits been up to?

Ever the socialite, our Lakes Explorer got up, close and personal with Brian the Camel, who’s quite the celebrity in the Canarian desert…

Our Explorer and The ONE enjoyed some rare Northern sunshine by Newcastle Quayside.

From exploring the sights of Liverpool, exploring South West China & getting amongst nature, our bottles have been all over!


We asked and you delivered! It is clear our bottles have gotten around this summer so far – who knew they were so adventurous? Our Lakes Explorer in particular has taken after its name, ‘exploring’ plenty of weird and wonderful places!

The summer is not yet over – have you got any holidays coming up? Why not take your Lakes bottle and send us a snap! Remember to tag us on social media with the tag #SpiritOfSummer, to be in with a chance of winning a bottle of each of our spirits!
