The Lake District has long been a crucible for creativity, a place in which the imagination can flourish, and it’s no different for Dhavall Gandhi. The Lakes Distillery’s whiskymaker takes his inspiration from the UNESCO World Heritage Site where a state-of-the-art distillery has been built meticulously within a 160-year-old farmstead on the banks of the River Derwent.
Whisky-making in its highest form is a dance between science and art, control and creativity. The Lakes practises holistic whisky-making, with Dhavall at the helm throughout the journey through the distillery. His single-minded focus at every stage provides continuity of character; only by understanding how the flavours are created can the whiskymaker fully realise the possibilities.
The majestic surroundings near Keswick inspire The Lakes’ artistic ethos and their ranges of fine whiskies, gins and vodka.
