The Lakes Gin
The Lakes // England
With juniper growing in the wild in the Lake District in England, it is only natural that The Lakes Distillery produces its own gin. The Lakes Gin is a mix of more than ten different botanicals, including Cumbrian juniper, one of the county's oldest species. Four others are also native to the Lake District National Park. These botanicals are all steeped overnight in an English wheat neutral spirit.
Distilled GinThis style of gin takes a neutral spirit and then adds juniper berries and other natural flavorings before it is re-distilled. After distillation, additional flavors (artificial or natural) and sweeteners may be added.
"One the nose, there's freshness and a decent amount of lemon peel, with an underlying juniper scent. Very traditional, with maybe even a hint of cardamom. Juniper and citrus make an encore on the palate, accompanied by perfumed coriander and angelica, with the juniper lingering for a while. Classic dry gin."
