Waterhead’s Signature Gin Cocktail – the ‘Chemmy’

We continue to offer a premium range of gin at Waterhead but in addition we now have our own signature Gin Cocktail for our guests to sit back, relax and enjoy…

Working closely with the recently opened Lakes Distillery and their Business Development Manager, Katie Read along with other members of the distillery’s team we have created a gin cocktail to relish. The distillery is a renovated 1850’s Victorian Model Farm and is located next to Bassenthwaite Lake in the Lake District National park.

The Lakes Distillery has become known for producing ‘The One’, a unique blend of exceptional whiskies from the British Isles. Now they can add The Lakes Gin to the brand collection. It’s this Cumbrian gin, made with local botanicals & distilled in an artisan still, that is the main ingredient to our signature gin cocktail.

Chemmy Alcott

IMG_5663The Lakes Distillery’s Brand Ambassador Chemmy Alcott, after whom they have named their gin still, the ‘Chemmy’, is Britain’s number one female Alpine skier and four time Olympian.

To celebrate the Lakes Gin launch and the creation of our signature gin cocktail we thought it also should be named the ‘Chemmy’.

The Gin Cocktail

Chemmy-CocktailThe Chemmy is an adaptation of a classic martini. Made using the Distillery’s Lakes Gin at its heart, combined with martini and then strained classically into a martini glass and garnished with fresh grapefruit – this really is one to savour.

The ‘Chemmy’ cocktail is being served now at the Waterhead Bar & Grill along with the Lakes Gin, The Lakes Vodka and The One blended whisky. We look forward to welcoming you soon to sample this unique creation.
