A celebration

In celebration of Simon Rogan's 20th Anniversary, together we rmark the occasion with the development of Reflections, a whiskky truely of The Lake District National Park.

The Artist

Strong in the belief that art is the core creative pursuit of humanity, Hideyuki Sobue is an expert in conceptualising what humans see. Something that perfectly placed him to create the latest Whiskymaker’s Editions illustration.

Celebrating the 20th anniversary of Simon’s restaurant group, it was while working at Rogan’s Our Farm in the Cartmel Valley, where the rhythms of the seasons are at their most apparent, that Hideyuki identified the inspiration for the Reflections artwork – the marigold flower. A plant close to Simon’s heart, the marigold is cherished not only for its great flavour and garnishing capabilities but also as a companion plant to help keep pests off other vegetables on the farm. It helps them to grow healthily.

Simon Rogan

"Reflections is not only an embodiment of the Lakes but also a moment of gratitude and reflection on what has been achieved over the past two decades alongside everything we have to look forward to." 

Reflecting on an evolutionary journey

Reflecting an evolutionary journey from Simon’s first restaurant L’Enclume, to the creation of his Cartmel Valley ‘Our Farm’, to what is now an eight-strong restaurant portfolio across two continents, the whisky was inspired by a moment of contemplation amid the natural beauty of the Lake District.

Suggestive of the autumnal Lake District in character, on tasting Reflections, spiced pumpkin and fragrant wood spice evolve into apple compote, warming cinnamon, and a long, reflective finish.

Grounded by earthly connections, a sense of place, and a desire to develop a harmonious relationship between the whisky’s flavours and the sustainable ethos and experience that keeps Rogan at the pinnacle of modern British dining, Reflections is a restrained, elegant and light whisky, but also incredibly vibrant.

Released on 23 September at 54% ABV, every bottle is non-chill filtered, natural in colour, and available to enjoy in Simon Rogan’s restaurants, at, and as part of November’s Home by Simon Rogan menu.
