First modern whisky distillery in England
Single Cask unique to Kindred Spirits
Barley grown on site at Nelstrop family farm
If we were to calculate conversion of sales after tastes in the shop, this would definitely be the winner. Very few customers (if any) taste this whisky and walk away without a bottle! Despite it’s 60% alcohol content the rich flavours are at the forefront and linger long after the last sip. This whisky is completely unique to us, coming from a single cask stored at the St. George’s Distillery – a real treat for any whisky enthusiast.
From the Distiller
On the nose is sweet rich peat with underlying notes of dark fruits with some light citrus aromas and a waft of smoked gammon. To taste, this whisky is initially sweet, followed by a massive burst of peat. A big rich flavour which is creamy on the palate with a long, spicy, dry finish.
Neat, with water or ice – that’s your choice. However, many choose to add a little more water than usual to bring it closer to the bottled ABV of 40%
The English Whisky Co.
St. George’s Distillery, Norfolk
The Nelstrop family have a 600 year history of growing and processing quality grain in Norfolk. In 2006 James Nelstrop and his son, Andrew, began investigating whisky production to diversify the family business. With support from a retired Laphroig distiller, they were able to produce 29 barrels of the first English Whisky using fresh water drawn from an aquifer under the distillery and the family’s own barley. Their whisky is made in batches, with no computers, chill filtering or colouring added and, once ready, is bottled by hand on site. They now run a successful café, visitor centre and have produced over 3000 barrels of whisky.
