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.
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.
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.
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.
