What is the Quatrefoil Collection?
The Quatrefoil Collection is the first Lakes Single Malt available on general sale from The Lakes Distillery. It is a four-year set limited to only 3,500 complete collections and the first to be presented in our iconic Quatrefoil bottle. It has been created to explore a technique known as multi-oak maturation to accentuate certain wood-derived flavours such as dried fruits, vanilla and spice.
What is multi-oak maturation?
The first component of this whisky was matured exclusively in first fill European oak Oloroso casks; the second in American oak PX casks. These two whiskies are then married together for a smooth and harmonious flavour profile.
What does the collection comprise of?
The first release, FAITH will be available in September 2018. The following creations of HOPE, LUCK, and LOVE will be released in 2019, 2020 and 2021 and sent directly to you to complete your collection. Each will be a different representation of what can be achieved using the multi-oak maturation technique.
The Quatrefoil Collection comes with the reassurance of all The Lakes Single Malts - they are not chill filtered and are a natural colour so you can enjoy the full spectrum of flavours.
The first release, FAITH will be available from September 2018. From September, you will receive the first bottle, and the 4-part presentation case.
