Top six English whisky producers

21st April, 2016 by Amy Hopkins


AdnamsIn 2013, Suffolk-based distiller and brewer Adnams released its first two unique English whiskies. Adnams Single Malt No.1 is made entirely from East Anglian barely and is matured in French oak casks. Meanwhile, Adnams Triple Grain No. 2 has been produced from East Anglian barley, wheat and oats and matured in virgin American oak barrels.

Last year, the company announced plans to spend £500,000 on expanding its distillery by installing an additional two pot stills and extra storage tanks. Adnams’ spirits business has grown “rapidly” over the last four years and has now reached full capacity.

  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?
