The Lakes practises holistic whisky making, with the whiskymaker at the helm throughout the journey through the distillery and beyond. His single-minded focus at every stage provides continuity of character; our assurance that every flavour possibility is achieved.
Whisky making in its highest form is a dance between science and art, control and creativity. It needs to respect tradition, but not be hampered by it. Our whiskymaker works across two seemingly distinct disciplines: the artist and the man of science.
All distilleries have a creation story, that moment of inspiration, when someone decides that they need to make a whisky. Tied to that desire is the pull of place. So, why the Lakes?
Challenging convention doesn't mean rejecting whisky's heritage, but respecting it. If the whisky is to be ours, then it has to learn, take from the experience of centuries, but also move it on in ways which are apprpriate to this distillery.
Inspired by nature, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of maturation and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a sherry-led house style.
