The English Distillery is England’s oldest registered whisky distillery. Founded by the Nelstrop family in Norfolk in 2006, the distillery is still independent and creates multi-award winning whisky from honest, local ingredients. The distillery has a unique place in history. In 1901, the last recorded whisky distillery in England swapped from whisky to gin production before being destroyed by fire. This saw the end of whisky making in England until The English Distillery was granted a licence to distil whisky by HMRC. In 2006 it became the first registered, operational whisky in England in over 100 years.
