In the lead up to St. George’s Day, you could win a limited edition English Whisky Co. Founders Private Cellar The Final Signature set worth £795!
St. George’s Day is next Sunday, and to mark the occasion we’re giving away a very special example of English single malt from the English Whisky Company in Norfolk. Everyone who buys any of the English Whisky Co.’s releases from now until the end of St. George’s Day will be automagically entered into our draw to win an English Whisky Co. Founders Private Cellar The Final Signature set worth £795! (No purchase necessary – see Terms & Conditions below.)
About The Prize…
This limited edition set from the English Whisky Co. features a bottle of the last two Founders Private Cellar releases bearing the signature of their late Founder, James Nelstrop. One of these whiskies was aged in a rum cask from December 2006 to June 2014, while the other is a peated single malt aged in a Sherry cask from August 2007 to June 2014. The leather suitcase containing these two 70cl bottles also includes four glass tumblers, a small water jug and a book about James Nelstrop. Only 238 of these cases (worth £795) were produced, and you could get your hands on one in our draw!
Need a couple recommendations? Well, it just so happens that Andrew Nelstrop (whom we interviewed last March) and his team released a pair of rather smart-looking and scrumptious English Whisky Co. single malts late last year – The English Original and The English Smokey…
Tasting Note for The English – Original
Nose: Zesty orange, vanilla custard, grassy malt.
Palate: Nuttier than the nose, with notes of almond and hazelnut. Milk chocolate, more orange.
Finish: Rich barley and a handful of spices.
Tasting Note for The English – Smokey
Nose: Cinnamon, smoked malt and blueberry muffins.
Palate: Full-bodied smoke, paired with light notes of buttered bread and peppery barley.
Finish: Stem ginger and lingering bonfire embers.
Enjoy and good luck, folks!
