Now England has its own place in the annals of whisky history, proudly boasting the Norfolk-based distillery St George’s Well, established in 2006.
The build up to the first release of English single malt was palpable, and it just exploded onto the market. Prereleases were already being described as impish and exuberant. The ‘new make’ spirit from St George’s Distillery received critical acclaim; Jim Murray awarded in excess of 90 points to some expressions.
After putting the initial release of single malt (Chapter 6 in the saga) on our site, it sold out almost instantly. The hype has been huge, but it won’t end there. The whisky is superb! Having tried the new make we were already predicting a wonderful forecast, and when we tried Chapter 6 we were blown away. We can’t wait to see what’s in store for us!
