Single Malt English Whisky
Distillery Bottling 70cl / 52%
Released in early 2023, the sixth edition of The Lakes distillery's award-winning Whiskymaker's Reserve has big shoes to fill after the success of the previous batches, the fourth of which was crowned World's Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards in 2022.
The idea of The Lakes' Whiskymaker's Reserve is to explore and evolve the distillery's sherry-driven signature style of English single malt whisky through an assemblage of Oloroso and Pedro Ximenez sherry casks with a smidgin of red wine cask-matured whisky to add a little pizzazz. The Lakes Whiskymaker's Reserve No.6 is bottled at 52% to ensure plentiful oomph.
