The Century of English Silence is Over.

The English are not particularly known for producing Whisky and their northern cousins make sure we all know who's better at it. There used to be Whisky distillers in London, Liverpool and Bristol until the late 19th century, when the production completely ceased. Until 2003 when two of Cornwall's producers revived the tradition. Three years later St George's Distillery from Norfolk started producing single malts, bringing grain from Fakenham, yeast from Kingston upon Hull and the water from Breckland.

The Nelstrop family that built the distillery has a 600-year tradition of growing grain, and after they created the first 29 barrels of English Whisky, HRH Prince Charles himself officially opened the distillery. Additional knowledge came from Iain Henderson, who used to work for Laphroaig and today, the distillation has a range of Whiskies, both peated and unpeated; bourbon matured, and sherry matured (one of the Chapters even had a rum finish!).

The Original is unpeated and aged in Bourbon casks, and it's light and simple with quite a crunch at first. One should enjoy it in small portions as it is rather sweet, with notes of vanilla ice cream, nuts and just a hint of sea spray.

Is it spelled Whisky or Whiskey? Maybe you've noticed it before, but let’s just take a wee moment to help you keep your Es in order with this simple rule: There is an E in the word Ireland, so there is also an E in their Whiskey. The rule also holds true for United States, so while there is no E in Scotland, Japan and Canada the same goes for their Whisky. All clear? Good.
Lance Winters, Master Distiller at St. George Spirits, got his job by turning up with a bottle of home-made Whiskey as his CV.
The two biggest Whisky producers in Japan and major rivals are Nikka and Suntory.  
In the U.S., Irish Whiskey sales have jumped by over 500% since 2002. It’s the fastest growing category in the Spirits industry. There’s some news to raise your glass to.
