The Award Winning Products of Lake Distillery Available in Morrisons and Served at Virgin Trains
Lake Distillery’s award-winning whisky, The ONE, is currently on sale in 43 Morrisons stores in the north west and North Yorkshire, and is available for first-class passengers of Virgin’s west coast services in London, north west, and Scotland. While Morrisons is stocking up on The Lakes Gin, Virgin Trains serve The Lakes Vodka.
It has been more than a year since The Lake Distillery at Setmurthy welcomed visitors. But their first product, The ONE, was introduced to the market in 2013. The ONE is a blend malt and grain whisky produced by other British distilleries. Meanwhile, The Lakes Gin and The Lakes Vodka were produced by the end of 2014, along with their Lakes Malt Whisky.
“We consistently seek to work with local producers such as The Lakes Distillery, which makes The ONE and The Lakes Gin perfect additions to our spirit range,” says Stefan Kaczmarczyk, CORR fortified wine buyer from Morrisons.
Stefan added that their involvement in the supply chain gave them control over the freshness, provenance, and quality. “We’re certainly impressed by the team at The Lakes Distillery,” he added.
On the other hand, CORR head of catering at Virgin Trains, Amanda Smit says they are committed to providing their customers with premium products while supporting local businesses within their routes.
“We’re delighted that we’re able to do with these superb spirits,” Amanda added.
The Lakes Distillery, England’s largest distillery, was set up by Paul Currie who has previously founded and ran the Isle of Arran Distillery. He said that they are taking advantage of the growing popularity of malt whiskies around the world. And he is delighted to have secured new varieties.
“Having such well-known respected brands eager to serve our products to their customers is a real compliment and testament to the thought and rigour that has gone into producing quality spirits. We try and source everything locally, whether it’s the ingredients that go into the spirits, the crafts we sell in our luxury gift shop or the food on the tables in the bistro.” Currie said during an interview.
The ONE, The Lakes Gin, and The Lakes Vodka have won medals in last year’s International Wine and Spirit Competition. They’ve also won a “tourism and hospitality” prize during the CN Group Business Awards which was held last October.
Lake Distillery’s bistro, on the other hand, was included in the Michelin Good Food Guide 2016 and recognized in the Open Table Diner’s Choice Awards for several consecutive months.
