The Lakes Distillery have unveiled a new single malt. Hot on the heels of the sale of all 5.992 bottles of their first single malt comes the Whiskymaker’s Reserve No. 2.
An exploration of maturation and blending, with the goal of defining a sherry-led house style for the Lakes Single Malt, No. 2 has evolved in keeping with the Lakes’ increasing sherry-cask influence.
The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No. 2 is a no age statement single malt, matured in PX, red wine and bourbon casks before being bottled at a cask strength of 60.9%.
4,788 bottles will be available in the UK, with the liquid un-chill filtered and naturally coloured by oak casks.
Dhavall Gandhi, whiskymaker at The Lakes said: “We are delighted to have received such a positive reaction to The Lakes Single Malt. The response has been fantastic and although you can no longer buy direct from the distillery, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.1 will continue to be available in a variety of specialist whisky stores and retailers, whilst their stocks last.
“At The Lakes, we understand how flavours are created throughout the entire whisky-making process. The result is a rich and varied artist’s palate, and The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is a series of artistic interpretations, each a different variation on a theme, brought together to create something new and unique.”
Released on 17th October, at a RRP of £65.
