Lakes Genesis Inaugural

The whisky is intended to be a work of art. A humble attempt to understand the true nature of the distillery and in the process, discover its very essence.

Genesis is about looking at the origins and charting the course for the future of The Lakes Distillery. 

This whisky was first matured in Oloroso hogsheads giving it a vibrant character full of dried ginger and woo-spice. After the initial period of maturation, the whisky was finished in casks made up of American and European oak to add a layer of dried fruit and vanilla. Finally, these two components were married together in orange wine casks from the Andalucia region of Spain, giving it a spicy and chocolate-orange character.

Only 101 individually numbered bottles have been released of this cask strength Genesis whisky.
