Gin is the drink to have this Christmas and the Lakes Distillery have released Gin filled baubles. We were kindly sent these through here are our thoughts:
When these first arrived in the office Holly, who is a Gin fan, was very keen to review. Holly said “When I first seen the box for the Gin baubles I was impressed with how it looked. It showcased the gin baubles beautifully and I thought it would make a great gift at Christmas time, if they lasted that long!
There were six baubles in the gift set and three different flavours The Lakes Gin, The Lakes Slow Gin and The Lakes Damson Gin. I tried each on there own, first up was The Lakes Gin which was clear in colour and at 43.7% ABV it packed a real punch. It had a fresh and fruity taste and left a clean, crisp after taste.
Next up was The Lakes Sloe Gin which which had a deep red colour and looked very festive, tasting exactly like raspberry jam but with a hint of coriander to ensure it was not too sweet, perfect for a cold winter night. Lastly was The Lakes Damson Gin which was a lighter colour than The Lakes Sloe Gin (more coppery) and had a beautiful winter fruits taste to it such as cherries. It had a velvet and balances sweetness to it and this one was definitely a close second to my favourite on The Lakes Gin.
Overall I loved all three of the Gins but my favourite one was definitely The Lakes Gin and would recommend these to any gin fan as this would would make a perfect gift for anyone.”
