Lakes Distillery unveils Pedro Ximenez cask-finished whisky

May 10, 2017by Annie Hayes

Cumbria's The Lakes Distillery has expanded its The One blended whisky brand with the launch of a limited edition Pedro Ximenez cask-finished variant.

The One whisky blends more than 18 different liquids from distilleries across the British Isles – and the new extension sees this original expression finished in former Pedro Ximenez casks made from European oak. Master blender and chief whisky maker Dhavall Gandhi said: “The palate is smooth and creamy with notes of vanilla, sun-dried raisins and nutmeg. “For me, it tastes of dried fruits with hints of fresh ginger and toffee with a gentle smoky finish.” Just 5,252 bottles have been released at an RRP of £39.95.
