The English Whisky Co. is launching the first ever 11 year old single malt whisky, as it puts English whisky firmly back on the map.
As the founders of English whisky in this country, The English Whisky Co. is proud to be the first to bring an 11 year old single malt to the market.
“It has been a very long wait, but after a decade and a half we are finally in a position to release an English Single Malt Whisky bearing an age statement,” explains managing director, Andrew Nelstrop. “The English – 11yr old is a fantastic example of the work that is being done in our cask warehouses, ensuring a generational supply of delicious English Single Malt Whisky.”
The new 11 year old, which officially launches on 4 June, offers a complex nose with citrus, baked apples and hints of almonds which give way to a taste that is fruity with some lovely oak overtones; all ending with a rich, oily and slightly dry finish. 2466 700ml bottles have been produced, RRP £59.95.
“We are very proud to launch this wonderful 11 year old English whisky,” continues Nelstrop. “The English Whisky Co. was brought to life in 2005 as the realisation of our Founder’s dream. James Nelstrop’s aim was simple: to open a whisky distillery in England and to make the very finest single malt whisky. There were no other goals or requirements. We are proud to have kept the distillery in the family and prouder still to have maintained our Founder’s desires to make a world class single malt.”
