The Lakes Distillery Whiskymakers Projects #1 – Elements (7 x 20cl / 56%)

Offering a rare glimpse into the mind of a whiskymaker as they set out to create a new single malt whisky, this project originates before we ever released a single malt.

Remarkably rare and individually numbered, this collection of whisky is the result of a forensic examination of what a sherry cask could be. One of only 1,368 whisky libraries, it explores the flavour, aroma and texture derived from different sherry-seasoned oak casks, presenting a snapshot in time of seven different types of sherry wine: Fino, Manzanillia, Amontadillo, Palo Cortado, Cream, PX and Oloroso.

From dozens of casks and specifications used in the original project, seven core elements were identified for Elements, whereby all parameters remained identical; the oak type (American Oak), cask size (500-litre butts), maturing spirit, warehousing conditions and ABV (54%).

The result? Each Element isn’t a one-off, a special release, or an intriguing diversion from the main business, but one of the infinite fundamental building blocks that make up the Lakes’ maturation philosophy. It offers a whisky enthusiast the rare opportunity to experience, with the aid of a reference library, the specific characters, aroma, texture and flavour that each element has to play when used as a blending component in the creation of a sherry-led single malt whisky.


Each set contains:

– A unique whisky library of seven 20cl elements, each exploring a different sherry-seasoned oak
– A hardcover Elements guidebook, offering a background to each sherry wine and how it interacts with our casks and new make spirit
– An individually numbered certificate; one of only 1,368 libraries
– An exclusive link for registered buyers to behind-the-scenes content, including an “in the making” interview with Dhavall Gandhi.
