Join us for a night of discovery as we explore their exceptional range of whisky offerings. Sample their robust cask strength unpeated whisky, savour the unique character of their Norfolk grain whisky, and be enchanted by the rich flavours of their English sherry matured whisky. For those who appreciate a peaty punch, their peated cask strength whisky will take you on a journey of smoky delight. And don’t miss the Norfolk PX liqueur, a marriage of single malt whisky and delicious Pedro Ximenez sherry, blended together then matured in specially selected oak casks for years creating a truly special and rich experience.
