Continuing the Cumbria based distillery’s journey to define their sherry-led house style, this latest bottling which is said to be an artistic exploration of maturation and blending, has the same sherry-led, wood-forward and flavour characteristics of the three previous releases, with a more restrained, sophisticated, and almost moorish influence.

Commenting on the whisky, Dhavall Gandhi, Whiskymaker at The Lakes Distillery, said: “From the American and Spanish oak casks, big notes of Manuka honey, sun-dried dates, and roasted cashew nuts lead to layers of dried fruit, nuts and spice, with an indulgent velvet-cream finish. One of our most complex yet approachable whiskies in the series to date, this is a well-balanced and contemplative whisky, ideal to enjoy after dinner or with good friends.”

The Lakes Distillery - The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.4, is now available from the distillery’s online shop, for a RRP of £65.00.
