.lakes distillery – gin

I am not much of a gin drinker, mainly because the distillers always seem to need to use an abundance of coriander, and I really detest coriander. Although many herbs are used in this gin – among which Cumbrian juniper, meadowsweet, hawthorn, heather and bilberry, they seem to have eased up on the coriander, which makes it quite drinkable to me.
