The English and Scottish borders were ruled by the sword between the 13th and 17th century. Awash with robbery, raiding, and riding, born out of the need to survive, a war-like race of men seized their place in British history.
Following the sale of all 5,992 individually numbered bottles of our first widely available single malt whisky in just five weeks, we have unveiled the second release in The Whiskymaker’s Reserve series.
We’re delighted to release The One Signature Blend, a new blended whisky which showcases our whiskymaker’s maturation expertise and the role of casks in flavour creation.
Celebrate our whisky journey so far with our favourite day of the year, The Lakes Autumn Whisky Festival on 26th October 2019.
Whisky maturation is so much more than simply putting a spirit in some wood and waiting; it’s where the majority of flavour is created.
Today – Saturday 7th September – The Lakes Distillery is proud to unveil The Whiskymaker’s Reserve single malt whisky.
An appreciation of the importance of location and the need for creativity are the foundations on which any whisky sits but the real question for a blossoming distillery is, what kind of whisky will you make?
Today, The Lakes Distillery has released the next chapter of our whisky story, The One Port Cask Finished fine blended whisky.
Last week Dhavall tasted and judged almost 600 whiskys to discover the IWSC’s ‘Best Whisky in 2019’. With master-blenders coming together from The Lakes, Johnnie Walker, Dalmore, Kavalan, and more, it got us wondering whether whiskymakers are born or made?
On National Cognac Day, we are honouring how The Lakes’ whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi, has taken inspiration and the concept of élevage – an active involvement during maturation – to open up more flavour possibilities.
