Description

This fifth entrant in the multi-award-winning Whiskymaker’s Reserve series saw our Cumbrian chums at the Lakes distillery embrace the house style of intense ex-Sherry cask maturation, augmented by some juicy ex-red wine casks. Plush and rounded, the resultant whisky is a triumph of sweet and savoury wood notes, exotic spice and nuts. Bottled at 52%, this mouth-filling dram leaves a distinctly rich impression on the palate of luxuriantly spiced syrups.

About this SPIRIT

The Lakes Distillery

The Lakes Distillery

The Lakes Distillery is a British distillery situated near the picturesque Bassenthwaite Lake in Cumbria, England. It was founded in 2011 and has gained recognition for producing a variety of spirits, including whiskey, gin, and vodka.

The distillery produces single malt whisky using malted barley and water from the River Derwent. They age their whisky in various casks, including Sherry casks, Bourbon barrels, and red wine casks. The botanicals used in their gin include juniper, coriander, angelica root, alongside more unusual flavourings, contributing to a distinctive flavour profile. The distillery also produces vodka, known for its smooth and clean character.

Since its establishment, The Lakes Distillery has undergone expansion and development, demonstrating its commitment to producing high-quality spirits. The most recent release, the Lakes Apex Velocity, has been described by our Buyer, Rob Whitehead, as “the most scrumptious English whisky yet bottled, and a pivotal piece in any serious collection.”
