“The English Whisky Co. is England’s oldest whisky distillery. Founded by the Nelstrop family in 2006, The English Whisky Co. built the beautiful St George’s Distillery specifically to make the very finest whiskies. The site is perfectly suited to whisky production, with the county of Norfolk being one of the world’s finest barley growing regions, coupled with the Breckland aquifer which can be found 50ft beneath the distillery providing a plentiful supply of crystal clear water.
Over time, the distillery has grown and today not only are we the oldest and most awarded English distillery, we also mature all of our casks and bottle all of our whisky on site. This ability to keep the entire process from start to finish on our own site enables us to ensure the very highest quality in all of our products. The distillery releases its drinks under two brands. ‘The English’ which is our range of single malt whiskies and ‘The Norfolk’ which consists of our grain whiskies and liqueurs.”
The English – Smokey. Aged to perfection in specially selected casks. A peated (45ppm) single malt whisky. A lovely waft of smoke on the palate, ideal alternative for the Islay fan.
A gentle aroma with hints of vanilla, aniseed & ginger, a creamy palate, a little peat initially and then the smoke bomb! Finish is long, spicy and smokey.
