THE LAKES DISTILLERY The One Port Cask Finished Blended Whisky
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 Speyside and Islay – and finishing it for one year in first-fill Tawny Port hogshead casks each one lovingly handpicked by their incredibly talented whisky maker Dhavall Gandhi. The One was already a one-of-a-kind being a unique blend of exceptional whiskies from the British Isles but this takes it to a whole new level. The Tawny Port influence adds cherry plum sultana and apricot jam to the unfathomably smooth marzipan sesame oil smouldering log fires and festive spices of the base whisky. That combo can’t help but call to mind Christmas cake and good times around the fireplace. The One Port Cask Finished Blended Whisky is simply magical.
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.
