Truly small batch, crafted in a 50litre still
Made with locally grown rhubarb
Crafted by spirits enthusiast, Andrew
We’ve stocked rhubarb crumble gin since we first opened in Ambleside in 2018 and it has remained a best-seller ever since! Rhubarb gin is generally a popular choice, but the unique twist of the “crumble” without any added sugars, coupled with its lovely pink hue make this a winner every time.
From the Distiller
The name gives it away! Beautifully smooth, this gin has rhubarb, juniper, and citrus on the nose. We use our quality gin and infuse it with fresh rhubarb and vanilla pods then a little torrified wheat for a short period.
Lixir rhubarb & ginger tonic water is the perfect way to add a ginger element without being too sweet, alternatively, elderflower tonic or ginger ale work well as mixers too.
If you’re feeling fancy, fill a large gin glass with lots of ice, a good measure of gin, fresh berries, lemonade and top up with prosecco for a cheeky gin fizz!
Andrew has always had a passion for spirits and was keen to begin distilling his own. When he found himself with a glut of apples gifted by friends and neighbours, he decided to trial a flavoured gin – apple caramel to be precise. He then began to experiment with other fresh produce, adding a unique twist on classic flavours such as rhubarb crumble gin and raspberry ripple liqueur. Solway Spirits was established in 2015 and Andrew now produces a range of spirits, flavoured gins and liqueurs in a 50 litre still in his garage – a true micro distillery!
