The Lakes Distillery

— Apex Velocity —

The Lakes Distillery is nestled in the picturesque environs of the Lake District. Sarah Burgess heads up the whisky-making team here, producing a range of fine bottlings.

The Velocity single malt – the first of their Apex releases – has been matured in a collection of rare Oloroso Sherry casks. It has a deep complexity of flavour, offering notes of morello cherries, dark chocolate truffles, tropical fruits and polished oak.

A Limited Release

With only 583 individually numbered bottles available, the Velocity represents expertise in élevage and the alchemy of blending, it outshines in its quest to create a classic sherry-matured single malt with flavour and complexity way beyond its years.

Our spirits buyer Rob Whitehead hails this whisky as "a pivotal piece in any serious collection" and goes on to say future whisky lovers will marvel enviously at the stories of those who drank it.
