The One Orange Wine Cask Finished Blended Whisky - The Lakes Distillery

The Lakes Distillery

The One Orange Wine Cask Finished Blended Whisky

£50.00

This is quite literally The One you’ve been looking for.

Created by taking The Lakes Distillery’s phenomenal The One – a blend of their very own Single Malt and carefully selected grain and malt whiskies from the Scottish Highlands, Speyside and Islay – and finishing it in Orange Wine casks, each one lovingly handpicked by their incredibly talented whisky maker Dhavall Gandhi. But don’t think of the uber-trendy white wines that are fermented on their skins for an extended period that have flooded the market recently. These are super-rare Vino de Naranja casks, which is a speciality of Andalusia (or in Spanish Andalucía), created by macerating white wine with orange peel and ageing it for long periods in barrels. This Orange Wine is usually only made for personal consumption in a place called Huelva, so getting hold of barrels is extremely difficult. These barrels layer flavours of thick-cut marmalade on buttery toast, pomander, lychee, salted caramel, oak, tobacco and the gentle smoke from a fireplace, over the top of the gentle peat, toasted nuts, dried apricots, sultanas and spice of the original whisky. The One Orange Wine Cask Finish is quite unique sipped neat, or it makes a brilliant highball poured over ice, topped with soda and garnished with a wedge of orange (charred if you’re feeling fancy). However, only 2,994 limited-edition bottles were filled, so if you want to secure one, you’ll need to be quick.

Amidst the tranquil beauty of Cumbria’s rolling greenery, dramatic fells and sparkling water resides an old Victorian cattle farm that has been converted into a world-class spirits producer. Located on the shore of Bassenthwaite Lake – the only official lake in the Lake District National Park because the others are technically meres or waters) –  The Lakes Distillery has been highlighted as one of the top five new distilleries in the world by Time Out USA and one of the “eight distilleries to visit before you die” by World Whisky Day. The quality emanating from this high tech, state of the art distillery should come as no surprise because one of the founders also set up Isle of Arran Distillers, the head whisky maker Dhavall Gandhi cut his teeth at Macallan, and everybody who works in the distillery has a technical degree in distilling. Whisky aficionados need to keep a careful eye on The Lakes Distillery because it’s on course to become an ultimate and highly collectable luxury global brand.
