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, heather and meadowsweet, to produce a gin which is complex, intriguing and above all else, delicious.
Tasting Notes: Slightly herbal, almond, citrus, juniper, cinnamon
