Tasting Notes from the Distiller
Nose: Sweet raisins, warm vanilla and slightly spicy. Hints of bread and butter pudding and caramelised sugar. Also a slight savoury and earthy background note.
Palate: Initially dry, then sweet, spicy (think white pepper) come through. Slight touch of anise along with lovely warm vanilla, just like a vanilla sponge fresh from the oven. Finish is long and the dryness kicks back at the end.
About English Whisky Co
Hand crafted in England’s only traditional whisky distillery. St George’s Distillery sits on the bank of the River Thet in the county of Norfolk. Below ground is a chalk aquifer giving a supply of cold, crystal clear pure water. The county of Norfolk produces some of the world’s finest malting barely. Our climate is warmer and drier than our Scottish neigbours, helping our whisky to mature. This is the perfect location to craft fine whiskies.
For the Connoisseur and Collector. We produce the “chapters” which are limited runs of special whiskies produced from different malts and matured in unique oak casks some of which have previously matured other drinks such as Bourbon, Sherry, Port, Rum, Maderia, Muscatel & Sauterne.
We also operate the only Solera in England which matures the unique St George’s Pedro Ximenez, a rich sherry that we have fortified with English Whisky.
