About This Lakes Distillery release

Designing a new whisky requires a framework of sorts. But, there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. The Whiskymaker’s Reserve has been an artistic exploration of maturation and blending. It evolved flavours and defined a sherry-led signature style for The Lakes Distillery.

Showcasing a sherry-led, wood-forward, and flavour-packed style, each release of The Whiskymaker’s Reserve has shared the same DNA. Varying in character, they continue to evolve in keeping with The Lakes sherry cask influence and sense of adventure.

Whiskymaker's Reserve 7 is the final whisky in this series. It's conclusion to the development of The Lakes Distillery's single malt’s sherry-led signature style. Offering a bold and recognisable flavour profile with an elegant sweetness, it is a fragrant finale to the series.
