Earlier this week our Founder, Paul Currie headed to Tarona Whisky Fair in Erfurt, Germany to showcase our range.
Now in its 5th year, the Whisky Fair is one of Germany’s go-to events for lovers of spirits that come from all corners of the globe. The event saw around 2,000 visitors, with three jam-packed days of whisk(e)y exhibitions, insightful seminars, thematic tasting sessions and live music. There was lots of opportunity to experience rare tastings and be inspired by industry leaders’ creative ideas, of which we were proud to play a part. Our Managing Director and Founder, Paul Currie was given the honour of officially opening the event alongside the Mayor.
Our German distributor set up camp at an impressive branded stand to display our range. The Lakes Distillery is a driving force behind a revolution of ‘new world’ whisky distilleries. As an English distillery rooted in the heart of the Lake District, our contemporary family of brands have to speak for themselves. In true English fashion, we invited along our Guardsman to watch over our spirit range and showcase our quintessentially British roots, and he certainly didn’t disappoint (queue the selfies!).
We received a fantastic response from visitors for, not just our whisky, but our gin, vodka and liqueurs. In particular, our award-winning Salted Caramel Vodka and Elderflower Gin liqueurs stole the show. We even got a chance to up-cycle some of our left-over bottles… By, they certainly make the perfect candle holder!
