Yan Gin by Herdwick Distillery
Herdwick Distillery, the latest branch of Cumbria's fast-growing Lakeland Artisan food and drinks business, launched its first product on 6 August 2021.
From time immemorial, Cumbrian shepherds have been counting their famous Herdwick sheep in the local dialect, beginning with Yan (one). Those who have tasted the amazing new drink say it is truly #1 in capturing the exhilaration of Lake District life and landscape, and its romantic connections to the wider world.
Infused with an expertly selected bouquet of over 10 botanicals to make small batch London dry gin, it is distinctly gin, sophisticated but not overwhelmingly flavoured This makes it ideal for mixing into any gin cocktail or simply with tonic for a unique G&T.
Herdwick Distillery reflects the desire of Geoff and Mary Monkman to build on their success in producing great award-winning local food and drink, from Cumbrian Delights jams and relished, Mawson's soft drinks and Lakeland Liqueurs. The product has benefited from extra research and development time available during lockdown, combining innovation and local knowledge from the Cumbrian base. Truly Number Yan for discerning visitors, locals and others with respect for authenticity and local interest.
