One is enhanced by sherry
A whisky blended from distilleries in Scotland, England Ireland and Wales has been released under a new expression. The ONE, from The Lakes Distillery in Cumbria, has been taken to another level by its creators who have launched an exclusive sherry cask finished version.
Paul Currie, founder and managing director of The Lakes Distillery which opened in December 2014, said: “Sherry casks are well established in the industry for maturing whisky but are rarely used for finishing a blend. We have created a significantly different whisky with a darker tone and a wonderful taste – sweet honey, subtle fruit and slightly smoky with hints of spice.”
