The only gin with true Lakes provenance.

An eclectic mix of 15 carefully selected botanicals, including Cumbrian juniper, and six others which are native to the Lake District National Park.

We steep the botanicals overnight in the finest English wheat spirit, along with pure Cumbrian water, sourced from the River Derwent. Our traditional, handmade copper pot still – Chemmy – then works its magic, as the spirit is then distilled very slowly in small batches, resulting in a complex, intriguing gin.

Drink neat over ice or with a tonic of choice.


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.
