Top six English whisky producers

21st April, 2016 by Amy Hopkins

East London Liquor Company (ELLC)

ELLCLocated in an old glue factory in Bow Wharf, London, ELLC has already released a London Dry Gin, Demerara Rum and 100% British Wheat Vodka. In 2015, the distillery – which feature two stills, one for vodka and gin and another for whisky – filled its first American virgin oak casks of rye whisky. The whisky will be matured on-site in the distillery’s cellar, while some stocks will be moved to warehouses in Sailsbury once capacity is full.

Distillers Andy Mooney and Tom Hills uses fermented mash from craft brewery Crate in Hackney Wick, and intends to bottle the rye without any additional colouring or flavouring. He intends to create some “very limited edition” bottlings and also experiment with yeast.

  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?
