We are absolutely delighted to announce that Genesis, the first bottle of single malt whisky from @lakesdistillery , has been sold for £7,900, breaking the world record for the most expensive whisky from a new distillery, and the most expensive bottle of English whisky sold at auction! Both bottle and presentation box were designed by Hedley McEwan. Genesis was sold at cask strength in a bespoke rosewood presentation box, each individually numbered and hand signed by Dhavall Gandhi, the Whiskymaker. Genesis comes from the Greek word meaning origin. Simply stunning.
