Each year on the 25th January, people around the world celebrate the life and work of Robert Burns on Burns Night.
You don’t need an excuse to enjoy a classic whisky cocktail but, if you did, this would be at the top of our list.
Thinking of raising a toast to Rabbie?
Celebrations don’t have to be paused just because of lockdown, so here’s a reason for whisky drinkers to shine from the comfort of their homes.
What a year it has been.
Today marks the sixth anniversary of spirit flowing at The Lakes.
While no one could have predicted events of the past twelve months, one certainty is that we would not have achieved any of the things we have without your support.
Seeing The Lakes community continue to grow as we traversed the challenges of 2020 has been humbling and inspirational in equal measure.
While the compass points of our journey – faith, hope, luck and love – have also played their part, we are delighted to be celebrating our anniversary by looking forward with optimism and backwards with a sense of pride.
We can’t wait to welcome you back to the distillery and our preparations are almost complete, with a host of new safety measures in place to ensure you have an exceptional experience.
On Saturday 16th May we held our first virtual whisky festival, exploring the influence of location on whisky maturation with Dhavall Gandhi and master blenders from across the globe; Tomer Goren from Milk & Honey in Israel & Michael D’Souza from Paul John in India.
What better way to celebrate World Gin Day than by joining whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi on a guided tasting journey of The Lakes Gin Collection.
Exploring the influence of location on whisky maturation, our very own guided online tasting brings Dhavall Gandhi together in conversation with master blenders from around the globe.
Distilleries, restaurants and bars may be closed and our 2020 events plan rescheduled, but that doesn’t mean you can’t meet up with like-minded people online to enjoy a dram of your favourite spirit.
Celebrate our whisky journey so far with our favourite day of the year, The Lakes Autumn Whisky Festival on 26th October 2019.
This year, we’re celebrating World Whisky Day in style by inviting you to join us on Saturday (18th May) for the first dram of our new The One, Port Cask Finished, fine blended whisky.
