The One (The Lakes Distillery)

theone_lakesThe One is a unique blend of exceptional whiskies from the British Isles, each has its own distinctive characteristics, resulting in a whisky of intriguing complexity.There are now distilleries producing whisky across the British Isles, and this has led us to create an entirely new concept in blended whiskies – a British Isles Blend.
To create ‘The One’, we have searched far and wide to bring together a range of very special whiskies from the British Isles. These have been blended with great care and passion to create a perfectly balanced whisky. The One is bottled by The Lakes Distillery at 40% ABV and is their first whisky launched and in a few years we will see their own whisky on the market.
