Lakes Distillery secures nationwide listing with Co-op

The Lakes Distillery has agreed a deal that will see its flagship The Lakes Gin stocked in 263 Co-op stores.

A delighted Nigel Mills CBE, Chief Executive 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.”

He added: “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.”

Co-op Spirits Buyer Jonathan Grey 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.”
