The Lakes Steel Bonnets Blended Malt Whisky.


The Lakes Steel Bonnets is the first cross-border blend of exceptional English and Scotch malt whiskies. At its heart is single malt whisky from The Lakes Distillery, created with love and great care in the Lake District National Park. Creamy vanilla and comforting wood smoke are interwoven to create a whisky born of the unique rugged character and heritage of the Scottish & English borderlands. The whisky has creamy, slightly nutty & full bodied flavour. Bottled at 46.6% ABV, natural colour and non-chill filtered.


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 ensures continuity of character; their assurance that every flavour 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 Dhavall Gandhi is actually involved at every stage. It is holistic whisky making. 


Creating a new whisky necessitates a framework being in place, but there has to be room within it to play, to follow gut feeling and instinct. There has to be a sense of adventure. That means not just creating flavour in the new make spirit, but opening up more flavour possibilities.  Dhavall knows each cask intimately; how the flavours are evolving and then how they can be blended with others to complement, enhance, deepen, broaden or contrast. They nudge against each other, some excited, some sulky, some diffident, the heavy and the light.


This is the art of blending – the same alchemy of perfumers who make new scents by creating a pyramid of aromas with base, middle and top notes. It is dynamic, it is creative, and expressive. It is also personal.  At the Lakes, blending is a creative expression of ideas, emotions and feelings through the language of whisky. It comes from the heart. It takes time, so the final hand-selected casks are allowed to marry together for up to a year before bottling, significantly longer than any other whisky. This creates depth, roundness and harmony, the final touch which makes it The Lakes whisky.
