Creating a new whisky necessitates a framework being in place, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct.
Today, we are proud to announce the latest in a series of award wins for The Lakes Single Malt Whisky.
Fuelled more by a desire to make sense of things than the need to follow a well-trodden path, our whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi began his career as far away from casks, flavour and creation as you can imagine.
The Highball has become an iconic symbol in a nation who, this week, would have been preparing to host The 2020 Summer Olympics.
Where, traditionally, we use American, French, and Spanish oak to create a timeless sherry-led whisky, with The One Sherry Cask Finished, it is the characters of Spanish wood which bring a new dimension to the flavour profile.
For The One Whisky Collection, it is the art of blending and the interaction between the spirit, air and oak which creates the layers of complexity, flavour and character.
The third expression in The Lakes Distillery’s Whiskymaker’s Reserve series has been unveiled as a new and aromatic single malt whisky, matured in the finest, meticulously sourced PX, Oloroso, Cream Sherry, and red wine casks.
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.
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.
