The Lakes Quatrefoil Collection Faith 70cl 56.5% ABV
The Lakes Quatrefoil Collection Faith.
The outstanding natural beauty of the Lake District has forever captivated the most artistic of minds. We take inspiration from the spectacular UNESCO World Heritage Site where we’ve meticulously restored a 160-year-old Victorian farmstead on the banks of the River Derwent.
Sculpted into the very bedrock of our distillery, the quatrefoil represents our core beliefs, which are at one with the soaring summits and expansive waters nearby. Faith, hope, luck and love are our compass points, traversing state-of-the-art technology, advanced scientific thinking and boundless creativity, leading us to new heights of exceptional flavour.
The Quatrefoil Collection provides a unique opportunity to experience individual flavours derived from specific oak species and sherry varieties. Each bottle within the Quatrefoil Collection highlights the individual flavours, which, when blended together reflects the house style of The Lakes Single Malt. The collection showcases our distinctive sherry-led maturation philosophy, demonstrating the wide flavour spectrum the use of American or Spanish oak can offer. Dhavall has meticulously selected the finest and rarest casks available to create this exclusive collection.
As with all single malt whisky from The Lakes Distillery, we add no colourants so the collection truly reflects the natural colour variation that comes from the use of American and Spanish oak. The entire collection is bottled at 55% ABV or above and non-chill filtered to offer a richer mouthfeel and full depth of flavour.
It takes courage to even contemplate tackling Striding Edge – arguably the most precarious, exposed, thrilling walk in the Lake District, if not the British Isles – and faith to conquer it. The Lakes Quatrefoil Collection Faith is a complex single malt whisky, matured initially in American & Spanish oak casks seasoned with Bourbon and Oloroso. This was followed by a second maturation in PX hogsheads made up of American and Spanish oak. The result is a whisky with comforting notes of vanilla, dried fruits and hints of cinnamon.
The Lakes practises holistic whisky making, with the whiskymaker at the helm throughout the journey through the distillery and beyond. His single-minded focus at every stage provides continuity of character; their assurance that every flavour possibility is achieved.
That idea if distilling being distinct individual elements is not how a whiskymaker looks at the art. Rather it is part of a continuum, a net of possibilities where everything is interlinked. Change one element and the effect will change everything else. Only by understanding how flavours are created throughout the journey through the distillery will the whiskymaker fully comprehend the possibilities. That is why at The Lakes, unusually, their whiskymaker Dhavall Gandhi is actively involved at every stage. It is holistic whisky making.
