Lakes gin launches at Co-op nationwide

Co-op has reacted to significant growth in the category to increase the gins available in its outlets.

In the year ending 31 March 2018, UK gin sales overall rose by 28% in volume and by 33% in value to reach £1.5 billion, meaning that sales have more than doubled in value in five years (£696m y/e March 2013) according to the Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA.)

The Lakes Gin is already listed with major retailers and specialist retailers across the country and UK World Duty Free stores in all UK airports.

The award-winning Lakes Gin is a classic gin with vibrant notes of juniper, orange peel and lemon citrus.

The botanicals are steeped overnight in the finest English wheat spirit, along with pure Cumbrian water, sourced from the River Derwent.

Nigel Mills CBE, Chief Executive Officer of The Lakes Distillery, said: “We are thrilled and proud that The Lakes Gin has been listed in Co-op stores across the country.

“Our Lakes Gin, one of the first products we created, has gained recognition for being of a high standard and quality and this listing is testament to that quality and our provenance. Our premium portfolio competes with some of the biggest brands in the market and this is demonstrated by the confidence shown in our products by major retailers.”

Jonathan Grey, Spirits Buyer at Co-op, said: “We’ve seen phenomenal growth within the Gin category at Co-op this year and with customers continuing to trade up into more premium gins I feel there’s a great opportunity for the Lakes Gin in the Co-op. The quality and provenance of the liquid and distillery are exactly what our customers are looking for.”
