Gins of the North West

The Spirit of The Lakes, Fells, Cities & Coast



From the fells and lakes of the north to the industrial areas around Manchester and Liverpool, gin is making its mark. Drinking it and crafting it has captured the imagination from Merseyside to Manchester and across Lancashire, Cumbria and Cheshire. Taking strength from its industrial heritage, maritime trade, glorious countryside and rich history, some of the finest gins in the country have been created in the North West of England.

Gins of the North West tells the stories of a hundred of these passionately-crafted spirits, where the industry has come from and where it’s going. * Discover how the landscape of the Lake District inspires its ginmakers. * See how chemists, brewers and farmers have brought their talents to the North West’s gin community.

* Meet the gins inspired by family recipe books, childhood treats and the most exotic of fruits. * Discover how Cheshire is home to some of the UK’s biggest brands… and some of the very smallest.

* Find out how cruise ship entertainers, firemen, actors and teachers have found a new life in the still room. Gins of the North West is a comprehensive guide to the region’s makers, distilleries and their gins. Fully illustrated, Gins of the North West makes the perfect gift for local residents, a souvenir for visitors to the area and for craft gin fans everywhere.
