The Lakes Quatrefoil Collection Hope 70cl 59% ABV
The Lakes Quatrefoil Collection Hope.
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.
Sunrise at the summit of Scafell Pike; a new dawn, a panorama of possibility, of the farflung corners of this Sceptred Isle. An awakening of hope, the catalyst for ambition. The Lakes Quatrefoil Collection Hope is an intense single malt whisky matured exclusively in first-fill Spanish oak Oloroso and PX hogsheads. The result is an incredibly fragrant whisky with distinctive spiciness and stone-fruit character.
The Lakes Practices 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 profile possibility is achieved.
That idea of 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 Dhavll Gandhi is actively involved at every stage. It is holistic whisky making.
