The Lakes Distillery has created a number of limited-edition single malt whiskies in the past twelve months, some rare releases of a few hundred bottles and others several thousand.
Intentional diversions from their house style, each bottling in The Whiskymaker’s Editions series is distinctly different from the last. Seen as a chance to play with flavour and nuance, to challenge traditional convention, and invoke emotions or feelings through the language of whisky, they are the product of a playground where instinct, experience, and inspiration are allowed to roam free.
Created with carefully designed pockets of flavour from The Lakes’ bespoke collection of casks, Mosaic is the latest Edition to tell a story through the art of whisky creation.
Drawing inspiration from the Silk Road – the ancient intercontinental avenue of trade and cultural exchange – it brings together a sense of adventure from both East and West, uniting eclectic influences and flavours in a singular, sophisticated expression.
Taking you on a journey through time and cultural becoming, it seeks to immerse you in a tale of two worlds with a mellow, rustic elegance in keeping with its cosmopolitan influences.
Dhavall Gandhi, The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker, said, “The fusion of people, knowledge, ideas and cultural beliefs along the Silk Road has had a profound impact on the fabric of our society. This is our attempt to create a whisky with a flavour profile that is reminiscent of passage through its many ports and cities.
“From crisp autumn days in the west, and the aromas of woodfire and spent leaves, Mosaic will lead you to the heady spice melange of Moorish bazaars and onwards into light, delicate oriental wood nuances that evoke a wisdom synonymous with Japanese temples.”
Non-chill filtered, bottled at the natural colour and 46.6% ABV, The Whiskymaker’s Editions Mosaic is now available from www.LakesDistillery.com and throughout the UK with a recommended retail price of £80.
