Rare Andalucían Orange Wine casks add new flavour dimensions

For The One Whisky Collection, it is the art of blending and the interaction between the spirit, air and oak which creates the layers of complexity, flavour and character.

The oak type and the liquid used to season that oak add their personalities as they integrate with the whisky. Working in combination they produce a myriad of flavour combinations, which is precisely what our whisky seeks to reveal.

The One Orange Wine Cask Finished

Rather than opting for traditional orange drinking wine casks, where white wine grapes are fermented in contact with their skin and seeds, our latest expression has been finished in exceptionally rare ‘Vino de Naranja’ seasoned casks, made only in Huelva, Andalucía.

Aged almost exclusively for personal consumption, Seville orange peel is macerated into a grape-based spirit and matured in American oak casks, to give a delicious, light and elegant aromatised Naranja Wine.

By finishing our blend of The Lakes Single Malt and select Scotch grain and malt whiskies from the Highlands, Speyside and Islay in Orange Wine casks, the original spirit takes a back seat as new flavours come through.

The casks create a distinctive buttery and creamy texture, as the oak allows occasional spicy notes to peek through a nose of fresh lychee, marmalade and hints of tobacco.

With flavours of gentle peat, tropical fruits and candied orange peel, this is a clean and smooth whisky with delicate nuances that allow you to enjoy it neat, with soda water and a twist of orange, or as you please.

Bottled at the natural colour, The One Orange Wine Cask Finished is 46.6% ABV and has been non-chill filtered for a richer mouthfeel and fuller flavour.
