About St Georges Distillery


Making really great single malt whisky in England is paramount to what we stand for here at St. George’s.

Why England?  Why not? We have fantastic water in the Breckland aquifer beneath our feet, we have the barley, the maltings, the yeast and now the distillery.

We don't add colour, we don't add flavour, we let the barrels do that for us.  Our whisky is batch made by hand with no computers, matured in fine casks, bottled on site using our own water and is non chill-filtered. We are really proud of these things and believe you will taste the difference too.

The Distillery is open daily from 10am - 5.30pm throughout the year (with the exception of Christmas day, Boxing day, New Year's day), running regular tours of the working part of the distillery.

Whisky Shop

 Gift Shop: open from 10am - 5.30pm

selling a full range of our own products including items not found on our website and also an impressive range of unusual single malt whisky from around the world.  In addition to our gift shop we have an online shop that sells all our products. These are usually shipped the following day

 Coffee Shop: open from 10am - 5.30pm 

serving good coffee and tea and soft drinks along with cake and snacks.  It is inside the gift shop and is a great place to sit and watch the world go by if you don't feel like doing the tour.

Green Space

The distillery sits amongst a grove of cricket bat willows which run down to the gently flowing river Thet.  You can take a stroll through the willows and along the river or simply sit and reflect on the fact that history is being made along with whisky as it is once again produced in England.

Wheelchair access - Wheelchair access is good to the shop, coffee shop and toilets.  We cannot get wheelchairs onto the distilling floor, but with prior notice we can arrange an alternative tour.

Visit our online shop to purchase any of our fabulous products.

We are very proud to say that our malted barley comes from Crisps of Fakenham, our yeast from AB Mauri in Hull and our water is pumped from under our feet from the Breckland aquifer.
