The Tebay Services Hotel and Tebay Services have been pioneering, showcasing and promoting local produce for years now and have become leaders in their field.
Food products such as meat, dairy and items such as cakes, bread, pies, jams and chutney’s have become synonymous with this motorway farm shop.
These have been in particular their own reared meat, a butchery counter, diary and cheese products, cakes, bread, chutney’s etc but now a new wave of Cumbrian produce has hit the shelves. These products are beverages and are fully connected to the landscape yet not beer, they are spirits.
Although these gins and vodkas are not newly launched products, they are still in the grand scheme of things fairly new to the market but what an impact they have made on this already very competitive sector. Both gin and vodka are having a astronomic renaissance at the moment and these artisan UK brands have been a major catalyst in the popularity and revival.
If you’ve not experienced Langton’s Gin then it’s distilled using slate filtered water from underneath Skiddaw, Keswick and Derwent Water to give an exceptionally crisp, clean taste. A blend of 11 Lake District botanicals are added which gives it a distinct taste unlike any other, a combination of juniper notes, soft not harsh and finishing with citrus. Moving onto Kin Vodka and this is the perfect after dinner tipple in fact, it is like pudding in a glass. Smooth, rich, caramel, toffee, sweet, it rivals any liquor whilst still providing a warmth.
Tebay Services have stocked Langton’s Gin and Kin Vodka for some time now but now the Tebay Services Hotel have these tipples behind the lounge bar there. This is a great way to try before you buy before heading off on the way home via the Tebay Services Farm Shop, armed with the 10% off voucher all guests of the hotel are given and purchase a bottle.
