A happy St. George’s Day to you all! We’re sure that you’re searching for an appropriate way to celebrate England’s (or Catalonia’s, or Constantinople’s, or sheep’s, or Scouts’, or sufferers -of-herpes’s, or butchers’, or…) patron saint with something produced ‘in England’s green and pleasant land’. After all, the Irish have Guinness (and several stronger liquors) with which to toast St. Patrick.
In that case, we commend to your attention the produce of the aptly named English Whisky Company‘s St. George’s Distillery, in Norfolk. Beginning production in 2006, they have released a steady stream of ‘chapters’, as they like to call them. They hope to continue to release these ‘at various ages from 1 day old through to 40yr[s] old’, which should give an excellent picture of just how a whisky develops (and make for some spectacular gift sets!).
Their current offerings look youthfully anaemic, but we should still very much like to sample them! If anyone has, let us know what you’ve thought.
