A SERIES of special gin cruises will be held in the Lake District this summer.

The team at Ullswater Steamers will hold the events later in the year.

They will set sail at 7pm on June 26, July 17 and 31, and August 14 and 28.

Locally produced gin from The Lakes Distillery, based in Cockermouth, will be served to guests.

There will also be entertainment onboard on each of the summer trips across the lake.

The return of the sailings follow a previous set of successful outings held by the company.

Tickets will cost a total of £20 per person, and are available to buy on the Ullswater Steamers website at ullswater-steamers.co.uk.

Dogs and those under the age of 18 are not permitted to attend.
