About this deal

Greg is very passionate and has put a lot of time and hard work into the development of his whiskey's and gin. The use of an ex-moscatel cask imparts a more floral flavour profile in comparison to the fruitier alternatives of oloroso and Pedro Ximenez. It has a good whack of peaty flavours (if you’re a peat nerd then you’ll want to know it comes in at 45ppm) that make it obviously smoky, but without totally overpowering all of the other flavours. Had the opportunity to learn about the making process and ask questions, all while tasting some great whiskies.

Ltd got permission to build the first registered whisky distillery in England for over a century; it first release of single malt occurred in 2009; which became the only English Whisky to have been bottled and released for over 100 years. We’ve got limitations; we’re in an industrial space in London, so we’re never going to get the same feeling as Scotland,” Plazewski admits, with reference to the romanticism of the iconic single malt scotch distilleries. In 2018, Stuart Gulliver relaunched the family business and the current range is made at St George’s Distillery.One of the most loved brands we have on offer is The English Whisky Company, who are England’s oldest whisky maker. The ‘new make’ spirit from St George’s Distillery received critical acclaim; Jim Murray awarded in excess of 90 points to some expressions. Designed to be drinkable as a young whisky, Bimber is full-bodied and fruity, with notes of sweet vanilla and a hint of spice. Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherries have been used to season some casks used to mature the whisky and they have given the spirit a full array of sherried oak flavours, from chocolate coated raisins and burnt orange to Christmas pudding spices and sweet, syrupy ginger. Spice, honey and barley notes unite with hints of cocoa, caramel and delicate fruits, all rounded off with smooth vanilla.

Beautiful venue in renovated old Town Hall with amazing whisky and a good story behind it and thoughtfully considers support. However, in the past decade or so, a few brave souls have decided that England should be known for distilling whisky as well. We have more in common than what separates us, so we’re in the enviable position of being able to honestly cheer on the next guy down the road.

Sourced from the French countryside, the copper still was hand-beaten in 1966 and has produced quality spirit for the likes of Hennessy, Martel and Remy Martin for most of its life. Unburdened by tradition, English distillers are embracing innovation, without a backward glance to the lost English distilleries visited by Alfred Barnard in the 19 th century.

The event consisted of two whisky master classes, one by the Cooper King Distillery and one by The English Whisky Co as well as whisky tasting and other activities. We currently have three core expressions: our original ex-Bordeaux Cask Single Malt, our American Oak ex-Bourbon Cask Single Malt and our ex-Oloroso Sherry Cask Single Malt, all carefully crafted in our distillery in the Old Town Hall, Bovey Tracey. While most new English distilleries have been releasing their whiskies to a fanfare of marketing noise, Dartmoor Distillery has been going about its business much more quietly, allowing the quality of their products to do all the talking. Our pick of the best English whiskies of note Cotswolds Distillery Sherry Cask Single Malt Whisky, 57. Each bottle has its own character and speaks to the terroir that distinguishes English whisky from its more established cousins.
