***Press Release from The Lakes Distillery*** Read on for our verdict on the update!
The new flagship Lakes Gin is a classic London dry style gin distilled with the luxury of time.
Following the philosophy of less is more, The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi, has recreated The Lakes Gin using only a select few botanicals that are also the preferred choice of perfumers and chefs seeking to create the perfect aroma and taste experiences. The unique blend of botanicals is infused in the finest British wheat spirit and pure water drawn from The Lake District National Park. By steeping the botanicals overnight like loose-leaf tea, they interact freely with the warm spirit to encourage the essential oils to release more slowly, protecting their delicate nature. The traditional copper pot still then runs slow and long to extract the maximum amount of flavour.
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.
Dhavall Gandhi, said, “A showcase of our discerning sourcing and exacting process of elimination, we’re incredibly excited to release our classic Lakes Gin with a new and distinctive flavour.
“Using only the very best ingredients to ensure consistency and year-round freshness, juniper, coriander and angelica provide our gin’s flavour cornerstones. Orris root, cassia bark and liquorice offer complementary flavours, with orange and lemon peel enhancing our gin’s citrus notes.”
At 46% ABV, the new Lakes Gin is released on 10th October. The recommended retail price is £33 and it can be bought from www.LakesDistillery.com.
