We’re delighted to confirm this week that we have secured a wider range of products and wider distribution in World Duty Free (a DUFRY company) shops at airport stockist across the UK.
This means that from this week, you’ll be able to find Lakes spirits on shelf at international airports across the UK, including Heathrow and Gatwick.
The expansion of our airport stockists network, including our first in Scotland, follows the success of The Lakes Gin in Newcastle and Manchester airport, where it is one of the top selling premium gins.
Where you can find us?
The Lakes Gin, The ONE, The Lakes Gin Explorer, Lakes Salted Caramel Vodka liqueur and Lakes Rhubarb and Rosehip Gin Liqueur will be featured in airport stockists:
• Manchester Airport T1, T2 and T3,
• Liverpool John Lennon Airport,
• Newcastle Airport,
• Leeds Bradford Airport,
• East Midlands Airport,
• and Humberside Airport.
The Lakes Salted Caramel Vodka Liqueur and Rhubarb and Rosehip Gin Liqueur will also be listed in 26 World Duty Free stores and the following airports:
• Heathrow Airport,
• Gatwick Airport,
• Edinburgh Airport,
• Glasgow Airport.
Nigel Mills, our CEO said: “As a distillery still in its infancy, this success is testament to the quality of our products, and the loyal following that we have already developed. To be the top selling premium Gin in Manchester, which has a number of its own gin producers in the region, proves that.
“We are already seeing interest for exports from across the world, but these products sold in duty free outlets across the UK, will become brand advocates themselves, as they distribute across the world in people’s hand luggage. This news, as well as our planned whisky launches in 2018, means we are looking at a year of exceptional growth for the company.”
A surge in demand for the distillery’s luxury Christmas baubles, released in November, resulted in shipments to United States, including: Arizona, Hollywood, Minneapolis, Chicago, Florida, Illinois, New York and Texas. Interest has also grown from the Ukraine, Germany, Netherlands and Russia.
