The ONE, the first blend of whiskies from around the British Isles ever to be produced and the inaugural product from The Lakes Distillery, will celebrate its first anniversary at this year’s Taste Cumbria festival on the 27th and 28th of September.
The artisan-style blend, which combines the finest whiskies from the British Isles, has enjoyed an incredible year since its launch at 2013’s Taste Cumbria and is now stocked in Harvey Nichols’ stores nationwide and Michelin restaurants throughout the UK.
The Lakes Distillery has also procured distribution deals for The ONE across The Netherlands, France, Belgium and The UAE, and The ONE joined the whisky world elite when it was classified recently as one of the best whiskies in the world - less than a year after launch, the prestigious International Wine & Spirit Competition (IWSC) awarded The ONE a silver legend.
Paul Currie, founder and managing director of The Lakes Distillery said: “This year has far surpassed our hopes and expectations. As opposed to blends made only of scotch whiskies, The ONE has been carefully created from the best whiskies from around the British Isles, leading to a very unique whisky.
“The Lakes Distillery is a Cumbrian brand through and through and we had enormous pride in launching The ONE at Taste Cumbria last year, so it seems only fitting we celebrate its first anniversary there this year.
“In addition, this year’s Taste Cumbria will see another exciting Lakes Distillery launch as we will be offering samples of The Lakes Gin for the very first time, as well as being joined by Olympic star Chemmy Alcott who is brand ambassador for the gin.”
Production of The Lakes Single Malt set to start this autumn at The Lakes Distillery, while its bistro, tours and shop will open to the public by December 2014.
