Founder's Private Cellar - 15 Year Anniversary


In 2005 our founder James Nelstrop decided to fulfil his lifelong dream to open a whisky distillery; within a year he had built England’s first registered whisky distillery for over a century and the stills were flowing with our wonderful spirit. Since then, our single malt whisky has been maturing in the very finest oak casks.

We launch this autumn, our oldest release to date, a 15yr old that has been matured in a beautiful bespoke sherry cask. This sublime single cask bottling is testament to the quality of whisky produced by The English Whisky Co. and a celebration of our Founders dream to make whisky in England.

Non-chill filtered. Natural colouring.

Extremely Limited Release
Only 572 bottles will be available worldwide.


Tasting notes

This wonderfully dark and oily 15yr old single malt whisky gives off a fantastic aroma of dates raisins and sultanas; in the mouth there are waves of cherries, chocolate and figs with a hint of ginger and added fruits when a splash of water is added.
