The English Whisky Co.

Tasting notes by Ruben Luyten - Posted in * News

English Whisky Co.The English Whisky Company is based in the St. George’s distillery, the first whisky distillery in England for over 120 years. It was founded by the Nelstrop family who have a 600 year old tradition of growing and processing grains and started production in December 2006, under supervision of Iain Henderson, former distiller at Laphroaig.

English Whisky Co. creates both unpeated and peated expressions, all named Chapters in the book that is the history of the distillery. As of Chapter 5 (a limited release) and Chapter 6 (the first public release) they are 3 years old and can be called whisky.


Tonight at 8 pm CET there will be a Twitter session to present four expressions. The blind samples have already been sent out, but you can still follow the hash tag #EWCTT and tune in if you like.
