The word ‘gin’ is derived from the Dutch 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 other 13 botanicals native to the Lakes, such as bilberry and heather, to produce a gin which is complex, intriguing and above all else, delicious.
The Lakes Gin - 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.
The Lakes Sloe Gin - Raspberry jam, cinnamon, orange citrus with hints of juniper and coriander
The Lakes Damson Gin - Fresh cherries, ripe plums and juniper berries with hints of spice.
