The Lakes Distillery sells out

Just shy of 6,000 bottles in five weeks, you have to admit that it pretty impressive. That is the chunk of more than a 1,000 a week.
By big distillers’ standards this would be a large tick for the sales et al departments but for a small distiller this is a more than remarkable feat, and of course leaves a lovely problem – what to do next…

Fortunately for the Lakes Distillery it had the second release of its Whiskymaker’s Reserve in, well, reserve.
Instead of the 5,992 individually numbered bottles of its first single malt, the Lakes has released 4,788 bottles available in the UK.
The second release follows on from No.1 with the sherry-led house style taking point, backed up by influences from red wine and Bourbon casks.

Dhavall Gandhi, whiskymaker at The Lakes, said: “We are delighted to have received such a positive reaction to The Lakes Single Malt. The response has been fantastic. At The Lakes, we understand how flavours are created throughout the entire whisky-making process. The result is a rich and varied artist’s palate, and The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is a series of artistic interpretations, each a different variation on a theme.”

The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.2 has a suggested retail price of £65 and can be bought from
