St Georges Distillery - Home to the English Whisky Co

The Whisky


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.

Why the Chapters?

As a new distillery we wanted to offer our customers the opportunity to follow the production of a fine single malt whisky, peated and unpeated, from conception through to, well, indefinitely! For this reason we thought it would make easy reading to keep the development in chapters, so at various ages from 1 day old through to 40yr old we will give you the opportunity to taste how the whisky is maturing. Each new bottling will be a new chapter to the 'The Book'.

Chapter 6

Our biggest seller, Chapter 6 was the first readily available English Single malt.  Very gentle, unpeated, graceful single malt.

Nose: Light and smooth. Fresh and frgrant, sweet, soft & slightly spicy. Fresh cut grassy notes, along with gentle vanilla. Fruity with hints of lime, banana and pear. A gentle waft of marzipan. Nose softens with water and is quite nutty (hazelnuts, cashews, almonds).

Palate: Quite full-bodied. Tingling and textured on the palate. Fresh wood, vanilla, again fruity and nutty, malty, cereal character comes through. Slightly citrus. Very clean.

Chapter 7

Probably our fastest ever to sell out whisky.  Our favourite as it reminds us of rum & raison ice-cream.  Bottled every couple of years - very rare but worth the trouble to get a bottle.

Nose: Sweet, soft and slightly spicy. A mixture of vanilla and rum & raisin ice cream, fresh and citrusy with a hint of tropical fruits. Slightly nutty with a hint of marzipan.

Palate: Very soft again with citrus notes. Slight peppery spice with a hint of raisins. Malty with a hint of fresh wood. Salty and dry on the finish. Slightly nutty.

Cask Type: Bourbon & Rum Cask

Chapter 9

Chapter 9 has been rather over-shadowed by it’s big brother Chapter 11, but for those of you who want a gentle hint of peat, in a very refined glass of whisky—look no further.

Nose: Very little smoke on the nose. Citrus, pine, spicy with paprika and pepper.

Palate: Light smoke and only lightly medicinal. Spicy and very zingy. Almost rum and raisin ice cream. Malty and floral. Nice balance with the smoke. Very gentle.

Chapter 10

The first of 2 sherry cask bottlings. This is the type of whisky we imagine our fore fathers drinking. Dark, heavy and dry—terribly traditional.

Nose: Quite heavy with raisins and dried fruit. Rich fruit cake, Christmas pudding with wine gums, dates with a hint of marzipan. A delicate waft of aniseed breezes in after a while.

Palate: Again very fruity, rosehip syrup.      Citrus fruits. Full bodied and quite chewy with a long, fruity finish. Very dry.

Cask Type: Olorosso Cask

Chapter 11

Our answer to an Islay, only it turned out slightly different. We have (rather luckily in my opinion) avoided the TCP taste and just got lots of bonfire smoke and lots of awards

Nose: Sweet and creamy with hints of ginger biscuits, aniseed and white pepper. Also vanilla and pear drops along with the grappa nose.

Palate: Creamy and clean barley at first, then the peat and pepper slowly build and fill every corner of the mouth, without overpowering. Ginger biscuits, lemon and lime followed by savoury dry peat and then more tropical fruits (pineapple, mango).

Chapter 12

The 2nd Sherry Chapter, this one was matured in Pedro Ximenez casks, giving a lighter and slightly sweeter whisky than Chapter 10.

Nose: Raisins, dried fruit and candied peel. Dried apricots and rich fruit cake. Dates and maraschino cherries with a hint of marzipan.

Palate: Full bodied. Again very fruity, particularly dates and figs. A waft of rosehip syrup. Warm spices with gentle hints of cloves. A light breeze of menthol and eucalyptus. Initially sweet and spicy, followed by a slightly salty, dry finish.

Cask Type: Pedro Ximenez Cask

Chapter 13

With just 1300 bottles available, these are presented in our new black carton boxes with a unique dragon label design.

Nose
Sweet and spiced with a gentle waft of smoke. Roast gammon with a marmalade glaze. Warm pastry, a bit like an egg custard tart with grated nutmeg. Hints of dark chocolate, mocha, and dark cherries. For those that fondly remember their school dinners, toffee cream tart!! Yummy!

Palate
Creamy and slightly buttery with notes of vanilla and toffee. Sweet, spicy, malty and oaky. Tropical fruits but also a hint of that 70's classic Black Forest Gateau! Again, toffee cream tart. Long malty finish which runs from sweet to spicy and then dry.
