About this Whiskymaker's Edition

The Whiskymaker’s Editions is one of The Lakes Distillery's key whisky collections. This series of one-off whiskies showcase whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi's sense of adventure.

Each Edition is a diversion from The Lakes sherry-led house style. It is an expression of creative freedom. A chance for Dhavall to let his instinct, experience and inspiration roam free. The Editions lean heavily on Dhavall's skills as a blender. They showcase how careful blending throughout the whiskymaking process can create nuanced and complex flavours.

Mosaic has a mellow, rustic elegance in keeping with its cosmopolitan influences. It's inspired by the Silk Road, the ancient avenue of east west trade and cultural exchange. Mosaic unites eclectic influences and flavours in a singular, sophisticated expression. From crisp autumn days in the west, where sharp air surrenders to the aromas of woodfire and spent leaves. To the heady spice of Moorish bazaars. And onwards into delicate oriental wood nuances evoking the wisdom of Japanese temples.

What you need to know 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.
