refreshing and uplifting

The One Manzanilla
Cask Finished

Buy online

Using an identical original blend of The Lakes Single Malt and select grain and malt Scotch whiskies from the Highlands, Speyside and Islay, we have created a refreshing expression of The One by elevating the whisky's flavour in the finest Manzanilla seasoned oak casks.

Exclusively from the Andalusian port of Sanlúcar de Barrameda, the cooler coastal climate of the region gives Manzanilla sherry distinctive dry saline characteristics.

Similar to Fino but matured only in this one Andalusian town, the sea breeze and humid climate deliver a salty, fresh character to the Manzanilla, creating a more aromatic liquid.

Plum jam, boiled sweets and aromatic woodsmoke on the nose with a touch of salinity leads to a palate of lightly stewed apples, candied ginger and a hint of lemon zest, with an uplifting, fresh and balanced finish.

fragrant and uplifting

The One Moscatel
Cask Finished

Buy online

Seduced by the floral nature of Moscatel wine, The Lakes Distillery has unveiled the latest cask finished expression of The One fine blended whisky. 

An uplifting and fragrant whisky, The One Moscatel has been finished in hand-selected Moscatel wine casks from southern Spain. It complements a series of cask finished whiskies which demonstrate the influence oak and cask seasoning has on the flavour elevation of a singular blended whisky.  

Similar in style to PX, albeit less sweet, the Moscatel wine is made with grapes from the small town of Chipiona, in the Cádiz province of Andalucía. Benefiting from the Soleo process – sun-drying the grapes before pressing them – the resulting reduction in water and relative change in sugar level alters the viscosity, flavour and aroma of the juice, giving rise to fresh and floral characters in the cask. 

With The Lakes Single Malt at its heart, the blended whisky has been expertly crafted by The Lakes’ Whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi, using select Scotch grain and malt whiskies from the Highlands, Speyside and Islay. The influence of the Moscatel cask creates a delicate and fragrant whisky, perfect for enjoying neat or with a mixer on a bright spring evening.

tropical fruits & candied orange peel

The One Orange
Wine Cask Finished

Buy online

Rather than opting for traditional orange drinking wine casks, where white wine grapes are fermented in contact with their skin and seeds, this release of The One has been finished in exceptionally rare ‘Vino de Naranja’ seasoned casks, made only in Huelva, Andalucía.

Aged almost exclusively for personal consumption, Seville orange peel is macerated into a grape-based spirit and matured in American oak casks, to give a delicious, light and elegant aromatised Naranja Wine.

By finishing our blend of The Lakes Single Malt and select Scotch grain and malt whiskies from the Highlands, Speyside and Islay in Orange Wine casks, the original spirit takes a back seat as new flavours come through.

The casks create a distinctive buttery and creamy texture, as the oak allows occasional spicy notes to peek through a nose of tropical fruits, country marmalade and hints of tobacco.

With flavours of gentle peat, butterscotch and candied oranges, this is a clean and smooth whisky with delicate nuances that allow you to enjoy it neat, with soda water and a twist of orange, or as you please.

Limited to only 3,840 bottles in the UK, and bottled at the natural colour, The One Orange Wine Cask Finished is 46.6% ABV and has been non-chill filtered for a richer mouthfeel and fuller flavour.

The One Sherry
Cask Finished

Where, traditionally, we use American, French, and Spanish oak to create a timeless sherry-led whisky, with The One Sherry Cask Finished whisky, it is the characters of Spanish wood which bring a new dimension to the flavour profile.

Softer and more porous, Spanish oak encourages a higher degree of interaction between spirit and cask. The more open grain allows the whisky to travel deeper into the wood, drawing out rich and intense flavours, as well as creating a beautiful and natural colour.

Sherry and whisky enjoy a harmonious relationship, one which, over the years, has helped to create some of the world’s finest whiskies.

Made principally from Palomino grapes grown near Jerez de la Frontera in Andalucia, Sherry is produced in a variety of styles, from the dark and rich Oloroso to the sweeter styles of PX and Cream, and the drier Fino.

The One Sherry Cask Finished demonstrates the flavours that can be derived from the finest PX and Oloroso seasoned casks. The same casks that mature The Lakes Single Malt.

Like all expressions in The One collection, this is a singular release with only 6,720 bottles available in the UK.

Heavily influenced by our dark and sweet PX sherry casks, this is a decadent whisky, with a deep, rich and more intense flavour, perfect after dinner or to relax and unwind.

An enticing aroma of Medjool dates, sultanas and polished wood leads to dark chocolate, sun-dried dates, wood spice with a whiff of smoke on the palate, with a rich, warming and lingering finish.

Bottled at the natural colour, The One Sherry Cask Finished is 46.6% ABV and has been non-chill filtered for a richer mouthfeel and fuller flavour.

The One Port
Cask Finished

This release of the One is a singular blend of select grain and malt Scotch whiskies from Speyside and Islay with The Lakes Single Malt at its heart, finished in first-fill Tawny Port hogsheads from Portugal and Ruby Port casks.

We know each of our whisky casks intimately, how the flavours are evolving and then how they then can be blended with others to complement, enhance, deepen, broaden, or contrast.

This is how we can handpick Scotch malt and grain whiskies that best compliment the complexities and flavour of The Lakes Single Malt when married together in a port cask.

The result is full-bodied and smoky with ripe cherries and plums on the nose, hints of stone fruits, nutmeg and black pepper on the palate, leading to a long, warming finish.

Non-chill filtered for a richer mouthfeel and fuller flavour, with only the natural colours derived from our oak casks in every bottle. Bottled at 46.6% ABV.

Enjoy as you please. Add a few drops of water to open up the flavours, or top with ginger beer for a refreshing serve in a highball.
