The Lakes Distillery, Whiskymaker's Edition Resfeber Limited Release (70cl, 46.6%)
Get to know: The Lakes Distillery, Whiskymaker's Edition Resfeber Limited Release
The latest in the Whiskymaker’s Editions series of one-off releases sees the Lakes Distillery venturing into less-explored sherry cask territory. This uses a core of Cream-sherry seasoned casks and additional character from red wine barriques to create a whisky that is vibrant and complex, creamy yet tart, with aromas of apple dipped in toffee treacle, gentle baking spices, notes of Maraschino cherry and rose petal preserve and a warming finish.
The Lakes Distillery is Cockermouth within the Lake District National Park in the north of England. It is the first whisky distillery operating in the Lakes for over 100 years. Paul Currie was a veteran of the Scottish Whisky industry and saw the potential in the area. After renovating an old dairy farm they were able to bring that vision to reality. Together with whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi they set about creating a unpeated, sherried whisky that was distinctive for the place, and continue to create and innovate through new editions.
The Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of one-off releases showcasing the sense of adventure of our whiskymaker. Each Edition is an exceptional diversion from The Lakes sherry-led house style; an expression of creative freedom, the product of a playground where instinct, experience and inspiration roam free.
With a core of cream sherry seasoned casks and additional character from red wine barriques, Resfeber bottles the excitement and energy at the outset of a journey, the restless race of the traveller’s heart before setting off.
