Press Release: The Lakes – Introducing The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.6

Available from 2 March, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.6 is the penultimate release in The Lakes Distillery’s journey to define a signature style.

No.6 (of 7?!)

An intensely aromatic evolution, the new sherry-led single malt retains the bold and complex characters The Whiskymaker’s Reserve is known for, bringing rich new flavours to the fore.

Delving deep into the subtleties of flavour creation, No.6 explores multi-layered nuances, turning the spotlight on exotic spices and gentle rose fragrance to create a distinctly different mood from its predecessors.


More flavour-driven, with a focus on accentuating notes of wood spice, it has been principally matured in bespoke-made Oloroso, PX, and red wine casks, hand-crafted from Spanish and American oak, and designed through the art of élevage and blending expertise.


Non-chill filtered, bottled at the natural colour, and 52% ABV, The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.6 is available from and specialist whisky retailers, with a recommended retail price of £85.

To celebrate the release, The Lakes Distillery has partnered with renowned mixologists from some of the UK’s most exclusive bars to design a series of serves underlining flavour’s role in influencing your mood.


Taking over summer cocktail menus in Scarfes Bar at Rosewood London, The Stafford’s American Bar, The Berkeley Bar & Terrace, The Lanesborough’s Library Bar, The Mandarin Bar at Mandarin Oriental, and The Donovan Bar at Brown’s Hotel, like The Whiskymaker’s Reserve No.6, the curated collection of cocktails tell a story through the art of flavour creation.
