The Whiskymaker's Reserve No.7
The Lakes Single Malt
A refined evolution on our journey to define a sherry-led signature style, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.7 has matured in the finest Oloroso, PX and red wine casks.
Elegant sweetness on the nose, rich and creamy honeyed fruits and a hint of dark chocolate lead to fragrant notes, warming spices and cocoa nibs.
Enjoy as you please. Try adding a few drops of water to open up the flavours.

"No. 7 showcases what could easily be generations of craftsmanship and knowledge from a distillery that has only been in existence since 2011. Incredibly impressive and well worth getting to know."
“Proof that England can do Speyside-style whiskies as well as the Scots.”
"This next iteration in the range is just the thing if you're after a big sherry cask whisky."
"A really indulgent dram. I can see this being one of those whiskies I'll bring out when guests come around because they just have to try it."
"Really nice, floral and bright with a really big, long finish that sits in your mouth for a while. Delicious!"
"One of the best English whiskies I’ve tasted in recent years. The Lakes Distillery are the pioneers of putting English whisky to the map, and this is another delicious example of why."
"We really like this whisky, it’s right up our street, we are a sucker for sherry and red wine casks but this is something else!"
This series has long been a shining beacon of quality and this one is no different. Rich and full bodied, fruits and tannins.
"A beautiful, evocative whisky inside and out, The Lakes Whiskymaker's Reserve No7 is a fantastic ending to a very well received series."

Introducing The Whiskymaker's Reserve
In the perpetual whisky life-cycle of beginnings and blending, is it ever possible to perfectly fulfil ambition? The whiskymaker’s inner pursuit of perfection fuels an eternal drive to better himself. His holistic role, at the helm throughout the liquid’s journey through the distillery, unlocks infinite variables and never-ending flavour possibilities.
The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is an artistic exploration of oak and blending; of flavour evolution and defining a house style. Creating a new whisky requires a framework of sorts, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. The architecture of each release of Whiskymaker’s Reserve will evolve in keeping with both our increasing sherry cask influence and our sense of adventure.
The final flourish in our internationally-acclaimed series was awarded the Grand Gold Medal at the 25th Spirits Selection by CMB.
