Pink Grapefruit Gin
When The Lakes Distillery refined The Lakes Gin, redesigning it, polishing it, and stripping away anything superfluous, we thought that they had created the ultimate gin. Then they released the Pink Grapefruit Gin, brimming with tangy citrus and that exquisite Provence rosé colour. We think that this is what love tastes like.
This stylish bottle deserves its place in any collection. The exceptional liquid within has been created using zesty pink grapefruit, pure water from the UNESCO World Heritage Site that is the Lake District National Park and a gin based on nine carefully chosen botanicals: juniper, coriander (which adds incredible lime notes), cassia (a type of cinnamon), liquorice, bitter orange, sweet orange, lemon and the two binding ingredients angelica and orris root. The botanicals are steeped overnight like a loose-leaf tea trapping all the aromatic essential oils. Crafted slowly through a handmade copper pot still to extract the maximum flavour, the gin that comes off the still is punchy and peppery, with notes of pine-like juniper and that unmistakable taste of pink grapefruit. The Lakes Pink Grapefruit Gin makes a perfect gin and tonic with no need for any garnish whatsoever. And if you can get your hands on a grapefruit marmalade, it makes a tangy take on the Breakfast Martini.
Amidst the tranquil beauty of Cumbria’s rolling greenery, dramatic fells and sparkling water resides an old Victorian cattle farm that has been converted into a world-class spirits producer. Located on the shore of Bassenthwaite Lake – the only official lake in the Lake District National Park because the others are technically meres or waters) – The Lakes Distillery has been highlighted as one of the top five new distilleries in the world by Time Out USA and one of the “eight distilleries to visit before you die” by World Whisky Day. The quality emanating from this high tech, state of the art distillery should come as no surprise because one of the founders also set up Isle of Arran Distillers, the head spirit maker Dhavall Gandhi cut his teeth at Macallan, and everybody who works in the distillery has a technical degree in distilling. Spirit lovers need to keep a careful eye on The Lakes Distillery because it’s on course to become an ultimate and highly collectable luxury global brand.
