We’re pleased to announce a number of exciting new partnerships that will boost our growing list of stockists and open more duty-free gateways to Europe.
From this autumn, The Lakes’ whisky, gin, vodka and gifting range will be available to buy from Ocado, the world’s largest dedicated online grocery retailer, as well as from British high street retailer Next’s official website and Heart of England Midland Co-op’s 32 stores, bolstering our current national listing within Co-op.
Following our previous success in travel-retail – with listings in all UK airports – our new alliance with global duty-free giant Lagardère will see our spirits brought to life for travellers jetting throughout Europe from both London City and London Luton airports.
2019 has been a fantastic year for us so far and, with the release of our first widely available single malt whisky only a matter of weeks away, these new routes to market arrive at the perfect time.
Following a highly competitive short-listing process, The Lakes Rhubarb & Rosehip Gin Liqueur was also selected as one of only 13 gins to be included in Wetherspoons’ summer Gin Festival. Offering something refreshingly different when paired with ginger ale, festival organiser Jen Swindells said, “We are keen to offer our customers the best range of gins possible, with the widest range of tastes. We are delighted that our pubs will be serving our Rhubarb & Rosehip Gin Liqueur and believe that it will be a popular choice at our gin festival.”
