Teaming Up With The Lakes Distillery
The Lakes Distillery opened in December 2014 on its idyllic rural site near Bassenthwaite. They produce their own fabulous Lakes malt, Lakes gin and Lakes vodka all on one site. Using water that flows from Sprinkling Tarn, through Keswick, Bassenthwaite past the distillery and then onto the Irish sea.
The distillery is based at a refurbished model farm. The main barn houses the mash house and still house, with unique stills carefully designed to produce the spirits on a small artisan scale. An old cattle shed has been converted into the warehouse, with further cattle sheds being transformed into the shop, bistro and bar.
It really is well worth a visit and we hope with our Elderflower gin gift box is also winner. Our gin gift box combines the delicate Lakes Elderflower gin with our beautiful fresh cream gin truffles and gin gummy sweets (which we are currently sampling in our stores). The taste of summer in a gift box.
