Inspired by precious memories, we have released a new Lakes Single Malt Whisky, The Whiskymaker’s Editions – Recuerdo.
An exceptional diversion from our sherry-led house style, The Whiskymaker’s Editions – Recuerdo is a complex and multi-layered single malt, inspired by precious memories of the comforting character and texture of Cognac to soothe and relax both body and mind.
Our whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi, has created a silky-smooth and complex whisky, brim-full of indulgent fruits, nuts and spices.
With unique, rare and bespoke ex-sherry casks playing a supporting role, it is the art of blending which takes the lead in bringing together the single malt’s flavours and textural nuances; the brushstrokes of the final masterpiece.
Spanish for a ‘treasured memento’, Recuerdo simultaneously conjures and creates one of the whiskymaker’s most cherished recollections, unveiling elegance and restraint as sultanas spiral into intense dark chocolate, with toasted almond and candied orange peppering the palate before dissolving into silky smooth treacle.
Like the same beautiful landscape painted season after season, the DNA of our house style, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve, is designed to be recreated over time.
In contrast, each of The Whiskymaker’s Editions represents a different art form every time. Unique, of the moment, and never to be repeated, they are singular expressions of creative and artistic freedom that convey emotions, ideas and feelings through the language of whisky.
The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker, Dhavall Gandhi.
Released on Friday 1st October, The Whiskymaker’s Editions – Recuerdo is non-chill filtered, bottled at the natural colour and 57% ABV. A limited-edition, only 900 individually numbered bottles are available from specialist whisky retailers in London.
