English Whisky Co, Chapter 9

After a century or so without a whisky distillery, England is once again distilling fermented barley. Leaders of this new challenge to Scotland’s dominance are Norfolk’s St Georges distillery, which opened in 2006 and already has an impressive range of whiskies in its cellars. This single malt has been lightly peated, adding just a hint of smokiness while emphasising the peppery, piney notes from its ex-fill bourbon cask ageing. For whisky fans the world over, the English scene is at last one worth watching with interest.
