Based in Cumbria, North England, The Lakes Distillery has been under the watchful eye of our beloved industry for a while now. In 2014, they barreled their spirit for the first time and now, Whisky Auctioneer is delighted to announce that 99 of the first 101 bottles of their 'Genesis' series will be featured in an Exclusive Auction at the end of June.
The whisky was first matured in Oloroso hogsheads giving it a vibrant character full of dried ginger and wood-spice. After the initial period of maturation, the whisky was finished in casks made-up of American and European oak to add a layer of dried fruit and vanilla. Finally, these two components were married together in Orange wine casks from Andalucía region of Spain, giving it a spicy and chocolate-orange character.
This is the first single malt produced in the North of England in over a century so we are delighted to be involved in this fantastic moment of whisky history.
