Ulverston's Award Winning Gin Distillery based in a shed on the outskirts of the Lake District.
We are regularly asked for recommendations about how to enjoy our gins. Anytime, anywhere, is our reply! However, maybe a little more information would be useful.
We have put our love, passion and expertise into creating these unique gins. Each one has distinct botanicals which combine to create their individual flavour. As we say, our gins are smooth enough to sip, alone, without any additions. You could simply pour them over a couple of ice cubes. Cuckold’s Revenge, Giggle in the Ginnel, Chilli Fest and Festive Tipple are delicious served warm.
All our gins are bold enough to mix without losing their distinctive taste, so you can mix with as much classic, straight tonic water as you wish. Zoe tends to go for a G&S (Gin and Soda). She likes the added bubbles with no additional flavours.
We are not mixologists, we leave that to the experts; so, we don’t generally talk about cocktails (see below for exception). However, feel free to go ahead, experiment and have fun. Remember, the most important thing is to enjoy what you drink.
One cocktail we do recommend makes use of our marmalade. Zoe uses the fruit left over from gin production and creates gin marmalade which was the inspiration for our Marmalade Fund.
Splosh some vodka (or gin) in a glass, add soda water and a couple of spoons of Shed 1 Gin Marmalade. Give it a good mix with an egg beater, or something similar, and add a couple of ice cubes. We even made a little video showing how to make it!
