We are delighted to offer a small number of bottles of the latest release of The Lakes Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.6 priced at £87.99. A great opportunity to get in early and add this exciting whisky to your collection.

The sixth edition of The Lakes distillery’s award-winning Whiskymaker’s Reserve has big shoes to fill after the success of the previous batches, the fourth of which was crowned World’s Best Single Malt Whisky at the World Whisky Awards in 2022.

Matured in a combination of oloroso sherry, Pedro Ximenez sherry and red wine casks, made with Spanish and American oak. Aromas of oriental spice, marzipan with rose water, candied ginger and polished oak fill the nose, complemented by notes of sun-dried Ajwa dates, toasted teacake, and hints of gentle spice throughout the palate.

Enjoy as you please. Try adding a few drops of water to open up the flavours.

We have 8 bottles available at £87.99 and once it’s gone, it’s gone!
