The Lakes Distillery has added a pink grapefruit gin to its family of spirits.

The Lakes Pink Grapefruit Gin has “all the qualities” of the producer’s classic London dry style gin, with “distinctive, resounding pink grapefruit notes”.

The company’s whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandi, said: “Inspired by my favourite Lakes G&T serve – which is garnished with a slice of pink grapefruit – we set out to make a new expression that will stand the test of time alongside our classic Lakes Gin.

“Following the philosophy of less is more, we explored different garnishes until we discovered the one which perfectly complements the balanced flavour profile of our juniper-forward gin.

“Ensuring we didn’t overpower the true nature of The Lakes Gin, we chose to enhance the vibrant notes of juniper and coriander with the naturally sweet, uplifting citrus flavour of pink grapefruit, making a lively new addition to our range that simply needs plenty of ice and tonic water to serve.”

The latest variant has a recommended price tag of £33 per 70cl bottle.
