The English Whisky Co Bottling's

The English Whisky Co. was established  in 2005 by James and Andrew Nelstop, as one of the first and for the time being the only registered whisky distilling company in England. 

Others are in planning stages one other failed and a Cornish Brewery produces a whisky in batches

Their objective is to produce excellent quality whisky that will be able to compete with some of the finest whiskies currently on the market. Aiming to use the very best local ingredients, giving a selection of unique and truly excellent whisky. 

The distillery produced its first 'run' on 12th December 2006 and it was with much excitement and with an enormous sense of achievement that the first barrel of 'St. George's whisky' was filled and along with the rest of the run, was put away for 3 years to mature. 

Norfolks warmer climate allows a more rapid maturation of the whisky.

I have collated the English Whisky Co bottlings so that it is easier to see what has been produced.
