The Lakes Gin
From: The Lakes Distillery
The Lakes Gin is the Lakes Distillery’s classic English gin with vibrant notes of juniper, cracked black pepper and orange peel.
They elevate flavour by using only a select few botanicals, gently infusing them in the finest British wheat spirit, distilling in their traditional copper pot still and only drawing the purest water from their Lake District National Park home in a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
The end result? A classic English gin with vibrant notes of juniper, cracked black pepper and orange peel. Gently distilled with the luxury of time for exceptional smoothness. Simply beautiful.
