The word ‘gin’ is derived from the Dutch word for juniper, ‘geniver’. The juniper berry is the botanical at the heart of gin making. Fortunately for us, juniper grows wild in the fells of the Lake District. We use this local juniper together with another 14 botanicals native to the Lakes, such as bilberry, heather and hawthorn to produce a gin which is complex, intriguing and above all else, delicious.
TASTING NOTES: The nose is complex yet balanced with aromas of fresh fruits, treacle, light spice and gentle peat-smoke. Palate is rich and balanced with notes of honey-roasted nuts, spice, and hints of dried fruits and wood smoke.
