The English Distillery

The English Distillery, founded by James and Andrew Nelstrop is situated near the Norfolk town of Thetford and began distilling on 12th December 2006. Impressively, The English Distillery source their barley, yeast and water (the three ingredients needed for whisky production) from within England, making this a truly English spirit, and is England’s oldest registered whisky distillery.

The English Distillery released the first legal English whisky in over a century in December 2009. Their single malt whiskies have been released under a few different names before they settled on The English Distillery, so you’ll see older bottles with The English Whisky Co. or St. George’s Distillery on the label. Early releases under The English Whisky Co. name were given a chronological chapter number, although chapters 1-4 were not technically whiskies, not having been aged for the required minimum of 3 years.

The distillery manager David Fitt, who used to work for Greene King, spent four valuable months working alongside Iain Henderson, formerly of Laphroaig, learning his new trade and adapting from his brewing background before assuming his current role. In a short amount of time The English Distillery has produced a range of whiskies: peated and unpeated; bourbon matured and sherry matured – Chapter 7 even had a rum finish. They have also branched out into cream liqueurs and fortified wine.
