Schools Out! Celebrating the start of the holidays with The Lakes Gin from 31DOVER.com (+ jammy dodgers, of course)


I'm getting really rather passionate about gin in my old age. Is it a 37 year old mum thing?

The latest bottle to grace my famous spirits shelf is The Lakes Gin Explorer Edition which, aside from being a truly gorgeous, premium gin, also happens to come in a rather pretty bottle (I've always been a sucker for good packaging).


The gin itself made from the finest English wheat spirit and pure Cumbrian water - as well as a diverse blend of fifteen carefully selected botanicals, including six from the Lake District National Park, where the distillery is located. 31DOVER describe it as a "complex, super premium gin, with zesty notes and herbal overtones" but in 37 year old mum lingo, I'd describe it as a really (really) delicious, smooth, citrusy gin. It's recommended that you serve it with a slice of grapefruit but I couldn't resist a slither of cucumber in mine - plus a plate of jammy dodgers on the side ;)


A large, end of term G&T for me, and jammy dodgers for the kids. I think we all know who's winning here!

Available at my favourite online drinks store, 31DOVER.com (who very kindly sent this bottle to me as an end of term treat - thank you!) a 70cl bottle of The Lakes Gin is £39.95 - and comes with a free Lakes Gin glass while stocks last. If you fancy buying a bottle (of gin, or anything else) don't forget to use my exclusive 10% discount code MODERN31D!


ps Every good gin deserves the best mixers. 31DOVER.com also sell Fever-Tree naturally light tonic water which is my absolute fave and compliments The Lakes Gin perfectly.

Enjoy the summer holidays all!
