Although England is not very well known for making whisky, there were distillers operating in London, Liverpool, and Bristol until the late nineteenth century. Production of English single malt whisky fell silent at the start of the twentieth century, only to resume a century later at the start of the new millennium. There are currently at least six distilleries producing English Whisky throughout England. The main characteristics of English Whisky are apples, cream, and cloves.
Perhaps more well known for their ales, ciders and gins, unbeknownst to many, England also produces a wealth of fantastic whiskies too. From the Lakelands of Cumbria and beaches of Cornwall to the idyllic surrounds of The Cotswolds, you don’t have to search for long to find a treasure trove of English-made whisky.
The character profile of English whiskies is typical of the flavours you might expect, you’ll find fresh notes of apple married with the richness and decadence of cream, all tied together with undertones of spicy cloves.
