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.

Milky Way is both a departure and a return – a Lake District round trip taking us light years from the Lakes sherry house style. Its whimsical, light-hearted nature rings true with its origins as an experiment inspired by the characteristics of vanilla oatmeal stout. 

Exploring symbiotic opportunities on this joint mission with Lakeland neighbour Cumbrian Ales, we first seasoned our ex-Bourbon barrel with locally brewed stout, then finished our single malt to add a fine layer of cask-derived flavours to our whisky. 

A sold out distillery exclusive.
