Item out of stock   |  

Together we launch Milky Way, the latest in The Whiskymaker's Editions collection. This release is only available through this series of exclusive events over the coming weeks at The Lakes Distillery. Extremely limited tickets are available per evening, on a first-come, first-serve basis.  

ABOUT Milky Way

Milky Way is both a departure and a return – a Lake District round trip taking us light years from the Lakes sherry house style. Its whimsical, light-hearted nature rings true with its origins as an experiment inspired by the characteristics of vanilla oatmeal stout. 

Exploring symbiotic opportunities on this joint mission with Lakeland neighbour Cumbrian Ales, we first seasoned our ex-Bourbon barrel with locally brewed stout, then finished our single malt to add a fine layer of cask-derived flavours to our whisky. 


Join us at 7pm on one of the following dates for a very special evening of whisky. Included in your ticket is a bottle of The Whiskymaker's Editions Milky Way to enjoy at home, but you will also sample of this limited edition single malt at the event itself. Alongside a special  tasting menu, your host will guide you through a matching drinks flight with each course.
