About This Whiskymaker's Edition
The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Infinity is inspired by the link between fragrance and flavour. Designed for the curious whisky drinker, this single malt is described by its maker to “stimulate profound thought” and “offer a unique experience” as it delves deep into the notion that everything in nature is entwined in a state of perpetual motion, leading to somewhere new.
Matured in a range of sherry butts, including rare Palo Cortado seasoned American oak casks, it is the art of blending, carefully layering complimentary and contrasting flavours, and balancing aromas that makes it possible for Infinity to appear in a state of constant dance between nose and palate.
It is complex and enigmatic. Each sip encourages you to go deeper into the rabbit hole of flavours. It offers the opportunity to explore infinite combinations that make it difficult to define where they come from and where they lead.
Dhavall Gandhi, whiskymaker at The Lakes Distillery said: “Created with a modern approach and a wide variety of exceptional sherry casks, Infinity is a whisky that offers a unique experience. With layer upon layer of continuously changing aromas and flavours, perfectly balanced and each jostling to shine through, it is a complex whisky that unlocks a different dimension with every sip. As one door closes, another one opens up in this constantly evolving whisky.”

What about taxes?
All alcoholic products sold by TopWhiskies are sold subject to UK alcohol tax, which is already included in the price.
UK sales are subject to VAT (currently 20%), which is included in the price. Sales outside of the UK are not subject to this tax, and international prices do not include it.
We use a specialist US shipper who sorts out US taxes. These costs are factored into the US shipping charges. So shipping may look pricey, but remember it covers your taxes as well.
For all other territories, including those in Europe, please note: your order could be subject to local sales taxes and duties upon arrival in the destination country. All additional charges are the responsibility of the recipient. As customs policies vary widely from country to country, TopWhiskies has no control over these charges, so you should contact your local customs office for further information. If you refuse to pay any import duties and taxes, this could result in the goods being destroyed by customs or being returned back to us - any refund offered would include a deduction of our costs.
