You are invited to leaf through The Lakes Library, where a curated collection of our most sought-after single malt whiskies await.

Embarking on a voyage of discovery through our state-of-the-art distillery, you will uncover the secrets behind design-led whiskymaking. Following the spirit’s journey under the guidance of a Lakes’ expert, we will reveal a modern philosophy built on an obsession for flavour creation and fuelled through the art of élevage.

A deep dive into the DNA of The Lakes Single Malt The Whiskymaker’s Reserve and The Whiskymaker’s Editions offers insight into our forward-looking approach. A visit to The Whiskymaker’s House provides the rare opportunity to taste The Lakes’ New Make Spirit alongside a seasonally-changing selection of four of our most scarce and revered single malts.

Sharing stories about the composition and inspiration behind each whisky, currently (until 30 June), our expert will guide you through:

        The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.4

        The Whiskymaker’s Editions, Bal Masque

        The Whiskymaker’s Editions, Volar

        The Quatrefoil Collection: Luck
