The art of élevage creates the artist’s palate of flavour | The Lakes Distillery The art of élevage creates the artist’s palate of flavour – The Lakes Distillery

Rather than sealing a cask and simply waiting, The Lakes’ whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi, regularly samples the maturing spirit and, when necessary, transfers it into different types of casks depending upon the flavours he wants it to acquire.

The Lakes Single Malt Whiskymaker’s Editions Le Goûter

The latest in a series of one-off single malt whiskies, The Whiskymaker’s Editions – Le Goûter (lay-goo-tay) is inspired by treasured memories of wonderful anticipation and taste sensations created on childhood cake shop excursions.

An exceptional diversion from The Lakes’ sherry-led house style, The Whiskymaker’s Editions showcase a different personality to The Lakes Single Malt. With each bottling unique, in this release, the whisky’s flavour has been elevated through the art of élevage.

A meticulous, creative and dynamic approach, élevage is an active involvement during whisky maturation to open up more flavour possibilities.

Rather than sealing a cask and simply waiting, The Lakes’ whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi, regularly samples the maturing spirit and, when necessary, transfers it into different types of casks depending upon the flavours he wants it to acquire. By knowing each cask intimately; how the flavours are evolving and how they can be blended with others to complement, enhance, deepen, broaden or contrast, Dhavall nurtures the spirit to create a palete of flavours from which he blends the final single malt whisky.

With a sophisticated simplicity, this is an elegant, fragrant and delectable whisky, enjoying a lightness of touch reminiscent of alluring aromas of freshly baked confections dancing on warm afternoon air.

Enticing you towards the source, the prospect of sweet treats with great friends lifts the heart and carries you onwards to your delicious destiny: Le Goûter.  Discover more .
