"We were fortunate that Iain Henderson a distiller of some note from Laphroaig, although ready to retire, was talked into coming along to help get us going. In December 2006 we were able to make the first 29 barrels of English whisky and by August 2007 we opened to the public with a visitor centre, fantastic whisky shop and tours. Iain has now retired again, but before he did, he spent 4 months training David Fitt, a brewer from Greene King to take over. David is now distillery manager and is also responsible for making a superb whisky spirit." - The English Whisky Co.

Nose: Fruity and fragrant and slightly spicy. Chipped bananas, dried apricots, sweet vanilla and light honey. Fresh cut grass with hints of lime and pear. Sbule notes of marzipan with a slight nuttiness (hazelnuts, cashews, almonds).
Palate: Spicy and slightly peppery (think white pepper). Again vanilla and bananas come through along with tropical fruits (mango and lime). More citrus notes and the malty, cereal character comes through. Nice fresh, clean palate with a salty dry finish."
