"Glorious chardonnay. It offers an intensely pure line of flavour. Lemon curd and white peach, bacony oak, oatmeal and toast. A super wine. A great option for the mid term cellar."

The Lakeland Gin NV
Our namesake but we can’t claim it as our own. Langton’s No 1 Gin was picked in a blind tasting by our buying team. Be is a negroni a French 75 or a G&T, the Langton’s No 1 is a classic, clean finishing Gin that belongs in your home bar.
