    The Apex Collection
    Preview Evening

    Friday 17 May, 2024

    Taking inspiration from a world of new influences, at The Lakes, we look beyond the ordinary, pushing boundaries in pursuit of flavour creation. With an aspiration to take sherry cask maturation to new heights, it is here, where curiosity and creativity blend effortlessly with an irresistible desire to do something never done before, that The Apex Collection can be found. 

    Inspired by the complexity of a seemingly insurmountable challenge, The Apex Collection is a story of progress; a voyage into an uncharted world of flavour, in search of what whisky can become.

    We are currently inviting expressions of interest for The Apex Collection.
