The Whiskymaker's Editions
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.
The iconic ever-changing landscape in North California's renowned wine country is the inspiration for The Whiskymaker’s Editions Sequoia. Heavily influenced by a diverse combination of cask types and exploring the subtleties of flavour through blending, Sequoia paints a very different picture to most red wine influenced whiskies, never failing to surprise and reward the adventurous.
Bold and expansive, the drinking experience is deep and multi-dimensional, with complex layers and intrigue, ripe for discovery. On the nose and palate, redcurrants take the lead, stridently setting out for spiced chocolate, taking in red grapes and dried fruits, with pleasingly indulgent butterscotch, fig and cinnamon diversions along the way.
Launched in 2021, it was available in the UK exclusively in The Lakes Distillery’s heartland in Cumbria and in selected internaional markets.
Launched in The Lakes' heartland in Cumbria in association with regional retailer, Booths, it is this fresh approach to retailing that has earned the company its position as the UK’s leading regional supermarket, and one of our biggest supporters and partners.
Locally sourced packaging
For Sequoia, we teamed up with Cumbria based James Cropper, a world-class advanced materials and paper products group, to help create our limited-edition whisky’s packaging.
"We are delighted to be working with The Lakes Distillery on the launch of the limited-edition release of Sequoia."
