Norfolk, England, is the home to The English Whisky Co. The beautiful distillery was designed and built by the Nelstrop family for the specific purpose of producing the very finest English single malt whisky.
Why England and more specifically why Roudham, Norfolk? Well, there are only two main ingredients in whisky, barley and water and Norfolk have them both. They draw the purest, cleanest water from the Breckland aquifer deep beneath the distillery. Norfolk is one of the world’s premier growing barley regions, so their supply is plentiful and local.
The Norfolk – Pedro Ximenez: mature some of our fine single malt whiskies in Pedro Ximenez Sherry Casks. These casks are full of beautiful rich dark sherry before we take delivery, so we decided to take the sherry as well as it is too lovely to leave behind. Since arriving at St. George’s we added some of our single malt to it and left it in the casks to continue maturing. We believe that the resulting drink is a wonderful wine, that makes a superb drink for many occasions. Our chairman prefers it chilled, our MD thinks it is lovely as a dessert wine. It is also glorious poured over ice cream
