Top six English whisky producers

21st April, 2016 by Amy Hopkins

The English Whisky Company

English-Whisky-CompanyBased at St George’s Distillery in Norfolk, The English Whisky Company is currently the most prolific producer of English malt whisky. The distillery was founded in 2006 by farmer and businessman James Nelstrop and his son Andrew. Making peated and unpeated liquid, the Nelstrops have distilled almost 3,000 casks of English whisky and conduct a “rolling program of cask trials”.

In 2013, retailer Marks & Spencer announced plans to stock its own range of English whiskies, sourcing the liquid from The English Whisky Company. Andrew, whose father James passed away September 2014, told The Spirits Business that English whisky has the potential to “make shelf space more equal”, adding that once the spirit has achieved a certain status, “there will be no going back”.

  1. Thanks for this interesting overview. Rarely someone speaks about English whisky distilleries.

  2. Brian Steer says:

    I splashed out on the Cotswold Distillery Dry Gin, their, Single Malt, the Apple Brandy, and the collection of three spirits, at cask strength. The Gin and Single malt are very good, and worth the money. I have yet to try the others I bought, but I would recommend a visit.

  3. What about Wharf Distillery?
