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 single malt whisky.
Why England and more specifically why Roudham, Norfolk? Well, there are only two main ingredients in whisky, barley and water and Norfolk have them both. They draw the purest, cleanest water from the Breckland aquifer deep beneath the distillery. Norfolk is one of the world’s premier growing barley regions, so their supply is plentiful and local.
The only other thing needed to create the very best malt whisky is oak casks. They don’t add colour, they don’t add flavour, they let the barrels do that for them, so they buy only the very finest oak casks. Most of the casks are supplied direct from America, having first been used for the maturation of bourbon.
Tasting Notes: On the nose its sweet, soft and slightly spicy. A mixture of vanilla and rum & raisin ice cream, fresh and citrusy with a hint of tropical fruits. Slightly nutty with a hint of marzipan.
Palate: Very soft again with citrus notes. Slight peppery spice with a hint of raisins. Malty with a hint of fresh wood. Salty and dry on the finish. Slightly nutty.
