A gin, made with spring water from Cumbria, has been named the best in Britain.
Produced by the Spirit of the Lakes company, the Bedrock Gin beat 40 rival gins after a blind taste test by experts.
The gin earned a unique Masters award, which means it received at least 90 out of 100 marks from the judges. Vince Wilkins, the managing director of Spirit of the Lakes has said that the award is a 'real feather in in our cap'.
It is the first gin to be produced using natural water from a spring at the Lakeland hamlet of Croasdale near Ennerdale, which has produced drinking water for several centuries. It also contains oak bark from Cumbria as one of 13 botanicals gathered from around the world.
