The Lakes Distillery – Master’s Distillery Visit

What a fabulous day spent in the company of Liveryman Nigel Mills, CEO and co-founder of The Lakes Distillery. This was my third of twelve monthly visits during my year as Master, to celebrate the 350th Anniversary of our Livery and my Master’s Appeal. 

It also of courses celebrates the creativity, innovation, and wonderful spirits being produced in both young and established distilleries all over the country.

Having already seen fantastic examples of this at East London Liquor Co and English Whisky Company, the exception talent and vision Nigel and his team have had at The Lakes has seen remarkable growth in their 10 year existence. Our tasting, co hosted by trainee blender, Grace Gorton, was a real privilege for me, sublime whiskies including their latest Limited Edition Whisky Makers single malt Mosaic. 

Thanks to everyone at The Lakes for their outstanding hospitality.
