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.
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.
