The Lakes Distillery has unveiled the first in a series of single malt whiskies to showcase the house style defined by their whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi.

Inspired by nature, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.1 is an artistic exploration of maturation and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a sherry-led house style.

With 5,922 individually numbered bottles at cask strength, it is a full-bodied expression, matured in the finest, meticulously sourced PX and red wine casks, comprising American, Spanish and French oak.

Joining The Lakes Distillery for the opportunity to define the future house style of the new distillery, Gandhi is an expert in many areas, including flavour creation, maturation (especially sherry casks) and blending.

He remarked: “Creating a new whisky requires a framework of sorts, but there must be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. We respect the conventions of Scotch whisky heritage but are open to a world of other influences.”
