The Lakes Distillery Iris reveals the world in a different light – a prismatic play of colours, aromas and flavours, where everything is turned up to the max and the everyday is suddenly transformed in a vivid multi-sensory explosion of fun.
Iris is intensely fruity and floral, a veritable flavour spectrum bursting with freshly-harvested crisp red apple and juicy pear punctuated with a fragrant honeysuckle counter melody.
The Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of one-off releases showcasing the sense of adventure of The Lakes’ whiskymaker – Dhavall Gandhi. The Lakes Distillery have in recent years released single malt whiskies in two series: “The Editions” and “The Whiskymaker’s Reserve”. The “Whiskymaker’ Reserve” series is the heart and core of the whisky production at the distillery with a heavy sherry influence, whist the “Editions” have been released to demonstrate the capability of the distillery to explore the artistic nature of the whisky making and blending process.
Each Edition is an exceptional diversion from The Lakes sherry-led signature style; an expression of creative freedom, the product of a playground where instinct, experience and inspiration roam free.
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 possibility is achieved.
The 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 actively involved at every stage. It is holistic whisky making.
