Infinity The Whiskymaker’s Editions Single Malt Whisky
To infinity and beyond…
Infinity is the latest expression in The Whiskymaker’s Editions series – a highly collectable set of releases from The Lakes Distillery that are always snapped up rapidly by connoisseurs.
Unlocking a new dimension with every sip, this whisky is so complex that it seems to have an infinite number of flavours and aromas. Matured in Sherry butts, including Palo Cortado-seasoned American oak casks. Palo Cortado is the rarest and most intriguing style of Sherry, coupling the aromatics of Amontillado, the richer body of Oloroso and a subtle lactic quality. This creates a bewilderingly intense and unique whisky. Every time we taste it, we seem to lose ourselves down a rabbit hole of flavour and fragrance. It’s the whisky equivalent of an M.C. Escher.
Incense, oud, peppery rye bread, Medjool dates, treacle toffee, festive spices, cacao nibs, cherry chocolate liqueurs, polished antique furniture, Werther’s Originals, Marcona almonds, salted caramel, vintage marmalade and gingerbread; and that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Unveiled at the London Whisky Show on 30th September, this is sure to fly.
The Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of one-off releases – never to be repeated – that showcases the skill and sense of adventure of The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker. Having cut his teeth at Macallan, Dhavall Gandhi is extremely talented, so it’s always exciting when he’s given the creative freedom to experiment and diverge from The Lakes Distillery’s classic Sherry-led style.
Amidst the tranquil beauty of Cumbria’s rolling greenery, dramatic fells and glassy 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 spirit maker, Dhavall Gandhi, honed his craft at Macallan; and everybody who works in the distillery has a technical degree in distilling. This luxury brand should be firmly on the radar of all spirit connoisseurs and collectors.
