The Lakes Gin Explorer is the latest edition to our portfolio of exceptional gins. A complex Super Premium Gin with zesty notes and herbal overtones – a gin of true Cumbrian provenance.
The only gin with true Lakes provenance.
A diverse blend of 15 carefully selected botanicals, including Cumbrian juniper, and five others which are native to the Lake District National Park.
Our handmade copper pot still is charged with the finest English wheat spirit and our pure Cumbrian water, sourced from the River Derwent. The botanicals are carefully measured into the still and steeped overnight to extract the essential oils. The following day the steam is gently introduced and a long slow single batch distillation commences.
Drink as you please. We recommend a slice of pink grapefruit to highlight certain nuances of our uber complex gin.
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 botanicals native to the Lakes, such as bilberry and heather, to produce a gin which is complex, intriguing and above all else, delicious.
Nose: Orange citrus, juniper berries, earl grey tea and cracked black pepper
Palate: Herbal and complex with vibrant notes of juniper, spice and coriander, leading to a peppery finish.
