The Quatrafoil Bottle,
simple and elegant.
The Lakes Distillery’s single malt whisky Quatrefoil collection is presented in a bespoke signature quatrefoil bottle.
The four leaves of the quatrefoil, an ancient Celtic symbol found sculpted into the bedrock of our Victorian farmyard buildings, forms the base of the bottle and creates an elegant form in which The Lakes Distillery is proud to present its single malt whisky.
The first whisky to use this symbolic design was the distillery’s Quatrefoil Collection, which marks the coming of age of the distillery’s first single malt whiskies.
“The simple elegance of the bottle appeals to the timeless nature of the spirit – trends in the spirit industry will come and go but we wanted to create something that would reflect the elegance of the liquid inside,” commented Paul Currie, Co-Founder of the Lakes Distillery.
Outside of the already curated collections and limited editions, it is traditional for a whisky house to design a signature bottle that is bespoke to them. “It was time for us to take that momentous step,” remarked Nigel, Chief Executive of the distillery. “The quatrefoil bottle is intended to become an icon for the single malt going forward. The quatrefoil shape literally symbolises Faith, Hope, Luck & Love – a mantra that we have adopted as a symbol of our journey.”
Allied Glass were selected to develop the bottle for their expertise in design and production, having already produced the bespoke bottle for The Lakes Distillery’s Steel Bonnets which features the intricate horseman design, alongside other bottles from iconic brands across the world.
The glass is made from the purest premium flint solely from raw materials with no recycled content to give the clearest finish.
