Today – Saturday 7th September – The Lakes Distillery is proud to unveil The Whiskymaker’s Reserve single malt whisky.
This is the first in a series of widely available single malt whisky releases that will showcase the house style defined by our whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi .
Inspired by nature, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.1 is an artistic exploration of maturation and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a sherry-led house style.
With 5,922 individually numbered bottles at cask strength, 60.6% ABV, it is a full-bodied expression, matured in the finest, meticulously sourced PX and red wine casks, comprising American, Spanish and French oak.
Non-chill filtered and bottled at the natural colour, the nose is rich and vibrant with vanilla, chocolate and wood spice, layers of dry fruits, ginger and orange on the palate and a long, warming finish.
A series of bottlings will follow, with the architecture of each release evolving in keeping with The Lakes increasing sherry-cask influence.
