Waterhead has an impressive Gin Library of over 40 gins and each month we feature one as our Gin of the Month. Bedrock gin has been in our collection for some time, and is a favourite because of its use of local Lake District ingredients.
Vince Wilkins founded the Spirit of The Lakes Ltd company in 2007 in Keswick, the Lake District. He set out with the intent and vision to create the first gin made using spring water from right here in the Lake District.
Vince works in partnership with a master distiller to create a gin using a blend of classic botanicals such as juniper, coriander, lemon and orange peel, liquorice, root powder, cinnamon, and nutmeg. To create the Bedrock recipe local ingredient of Lake District oak bark as well as the spring water from Ennerdale in the Western Lakes gives this gin an extra local twist.
Bedrock is a premium London Dry was launched in October 2008 has become well known for its smooth style with fresh citrus essences. Since being introduced to the gin world, Bedrock has been recognised for its outstanding quality and achieved many awards and accolades. Some of the awards that have recognised the quality of Bedrock are Gold in 2014 at the International Wine and Sprit Competition, Gold at Taste Cumbria, and Masters award at the Gin Masters.
Spirit of The Lakes has recently launched a different version of Bedrock, known as Bedrock Export strength. Still made using the same local spring water from the Lake District, this 46% bottling highlights the subtle juniper and citrus elements for which Bedrock is renowned. With the complex flavours blending culminating in a finish of greater intensity, which in short makes a bolder Bedrock Gin.
