England's oldest and most prominent whisky distillery is English Whisky Co. An independent family-owned company founded with the sole purpose of handcrafting the greatest English Single Malt Whisky. It was inspired by the Nelstrop family's enthusiasm for single malt whisky.
Their Master Distiller painstakingly handcrafts the spirit in Norfolk using locally obtained barley and fresh water from the Brecklands aquifer, which runs beneath the distillery. The spirit is then placed into the best oak casks and allowed to mature for years. Once perfectly aged, selected casks are chosen to be hand bottled locally and sold.
