Unpeated single malt whisky from St George’s Distillery, the home of England’s only Whisky Distillery.
ALSO AVAILABE IN CASK STRENGTH:
St George’s is the home to The English Whisky Co. The beautiful distillery was designed and built by the Nelstrop family for the specific purpose of producing the very finest English Malt Whisky.
Why England and more specifically Why Roudham, Norfolk? Well there are only 2 main ingredients in whisky and we have them both. We have the purest, cleanest water in the Breckland aquifer deep beneath our distillery, we have the barley as Norfolk is one of the world’s premier growing regions.
The only other thing needed to create the very best malt whisky is oak casks. We don't add colour, we don't add flavour, we let the barrels do that for us, so we have to buy only the very finest oak casks. Most of ours are supplied by direct from America, having first been used for the maturation of bourbon. We also mature in sherry casks, and various other wine casks.
Our whisky really is batch made by hand with no computers, filled into casks and then left to sleep until our distillers consider it perfect for bottling, which of course we do by hand - one bottle at a time.
