Set up in rural Norfolk in 2006, St Georges (as it more commonly known) was the first legal English distillery in 100 years.
Aided by distilling legend Iain Henderson, they produced their first spirit in November 2006 and released their first whisky in December 2009, to huge acclaim. Signing Iain Henderson was likened to Norwich City signing David Beckham! If only...
An English distillery was always going to stir massive interest, and the fact that that interest is still being stirred a year after its whiskies have been sampled is testament to their quality.
The first whisky was Chapter 6, an un-peated and distinctly fruity three year-old.
The Whisky Tasting Club Notes:
Nose: Mango, kiwi fruit with green fruit salad, and cream with a background of light oak.
Palate: An immediate hit of spice that is lately joined by barley and citrus. The finish is of medium length with pepper and fading vanilla.
