Genesis: The Beginning. | The Lakes Distillery Genesis: The Beginning. – The Lakes Distillery

It is with great pride that we announce the launch of The Lakes Genesis Single Malt Whisky

This is a story of creation.

This single malt whisky is intended to be a work of art. A humble attempt to understand the true nature of the distillery and in the process, discover its very essence.

Genesis is about looking at our origins and charting the course for the future. It is about exploring the possibilities. It is about taking pride in our past and being confident about our future. Genesis is a glimpse of what The Lakes Distillery has to offer.

It is about stepping into the unknown, because the greatest journeys don’t need a map, especially those taken by the greatest of artists.

Genesis is limited to only 101 bottles, 99 of which are going to auction for an 11-day period from 29th of June 2018 to 10th of July 2018. Each bottle will be individually numbered and hand signed by Dhavall and presented in a beautiful wooden display case.

Our single malt encapsulates all that we’ve worked so hard for since the day the first spirit flowed at the Distillery, and the beginnings of a renaissance for English Whisky.

This is the story of a dream come true. Our vision is to create one of the leading malt spirits in the world,  and every detail has been carefully constructed to support the dream – from the restoration of the buildings through to the state of the art equipment used to create the spirits themselves.  This, alongside our passionate team of talented distillers  have been brought together to produce an exquisite product.

 Whiskymaker Notes

Genesis is a work of alchemy – a relentless search to uncover the essence of the liquid spirit and nurture its full potential.

The whisky was first matured in Oloroso hogsheads giving it a vibrant character full of dried ginger and wood-spice. After the initial period of maturation, the whisky was finished in casks made-up of American and European oak to add a layer of dried fruit and vanilla.  Finally, these two components were married together in Orange wine casks from Andalucía region of Spain, giving it a spicy and chocolate-orange character. We are bottling at cask strength and retaining its natural colour, so you can experience the full spectrum of flavour.

In order for you to experience the full spectrum of flavours, I have decided to bottle this at Cask Strength and Natural Colour. Give it your attention, and it will reveal its true depth. It is a whisky to savour, and to contemplate.

I hope you enjoy drinking it as much as I have enjoyed making it.
