Luxury department store Harvey Nichols has been announced as the first UK-wide retailer of The ONE, the first blend of whiskies created by The Lakes Distillery.
The ONE combines the finest whiskies from Scotland, Ireland, Wales and England, and will be featured within Harvey Nichols’ stores including London, Edinburgh, Manchester and Dublin.
The listing comes shortly after the £5m Lakes Distillery, based in Cumbria with offices in Newcastle, announced distribution deals for The ONE across The Netherlands, France, Belgium and The UAE just six months after its launch.
Paul Currie, founder and managing director of The Lakes Distillery, said: “Harvey Nichols has become synonymous with British style and excellence, qualities which directly resonate with The ONE’s brand values.”
The team behind the new distillery in Cumbria includes former Isle of Arran Distillers co-founder Paul Currie, and Chris Anderson, master distiller, formerly of Dewars. Building work is well underway on the Lakes Distillery at Lake Bassenthwaite which, when complete, will be England’s biggest distillery producing over one million bottles of The Lakes Malt per year.
Production is set to start this summer on The Lakes Distillery’s whisky, gin and vodka.
