St. George’s distillery released the first legal English whisky in over a century in December 2009. Their single malt whiskies are released under The English Whisky Co., and each is given a chronological chapter number, although chapters 1-4 were not technically whiskies, not having been aged for the required minimum of 3 years.

The distillery, founded by James and Andrew Nelstrop, is situated near the Norfolk town of Thetford and began distilling on 12th December 2006. Impressively, The English Whisky Co. source their barley, yeast and water (the three ingredients needed for whisky production) from within England and as local to the distillery as possible, making this a truly English spirit.

The distillery manager David Fitt, who used to work for Greene King, spent four valuable months working alongside Iain Henderson, formerly of Laphroaig, learning his new trade and adapting from his brewing background before assuming his current role. In a short amount of time St. George’s has produced a range of whiskies: peated and unpeated; bourbon matured and sherry matured--Chapter 7 even had a rum finish. They have also branched out into cream liqueurs and fortified wine.

The Original

Launched in 2016, The English Whisky Company's The English range features a pair of English single malt whiskies - this is the Original expression made with un-peated barley and aged exclusively in ex-bourbon casks, showing off a creamy, vanilla-rich flavour profile.

Tasting Notes

Nose: Zesty orange, vanilla custard, grassy malt.

Palate: Nuttier than the nose, with notes of almond and hazelnut. Milk chocolate, more orange.

Finish: Rich barley and a handful of spices with a slightly salty tang on the end.

Please note: Vintages may vary. If you require a specific vintage please contact us in advance to check.
