The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Mosaic 70cl 46.6% ABV
The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Mosaic.
The Lakes Distillery have in recent years released single malt whiskies in two series: “The Editions” and “The Whiskymaker’s Reserve”. The “Whiskymaker’s Reserve” series is the heart and core of the whisky production at the distillery with a heavy sherry influence, whilst the Editions have been released to demonstrate the capability of the distillery to explore the artistic nature if the whisky making and blending process.
The Whiskymaker’s Editions is a series of one-off releases showcasing the sense of adventure of The Lakes 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 Lakes Whiskymaker’s Editions Mosaic has a mellow, rustic elegance in keeping with its cosmopolitan influences. Taking inspiration from the Silk Road, the ancient intercontinental avenue of east west trade and cultural exchange, Mosaic unites eclectic influences and flavours in a singular, sophisticated expression. From crisp autumn days in the west, where the thin, sharp air surrenders to the aromas of woodfire and spent leaves, to the heady spice melange of Moorish bazaars and onwards into light, delicate oriental wood nuances evoking a wisdom synonymous with Japanese temples.
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.
The 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 flavour 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.
