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.
