Proof66 Notes

With neighboring Scotland and Ireland producing vast amounts of whiskey, St George's Distillery stands alone as a rare distillery in England specializing in whiskey. Indeed, they claim to be the first English whiskey distillery in 120 years. It was founded in 2006 by James Nelstrop, from a family who claim a heritage going back to 1335 when William Nelstroppe opened a mill and his descendants became interested farming, commerce, and eventually whiskey. Their first distiller was Iain Henderson of Laphroaig, who came out of retirement to work with St George's. They produce whiskey in "chapters" to represent the various stages of whiskey during its production. 

The Whiskey Company Peated Single Malt whiskey is their take on what we presume are the more famous smoky, peated Islay single malt scotches produced by their neighbors. It is bottled non-chill filtered, meaning that it will have thicker, more viscous, robust mouthfeel than many lighter-bodied whiskeys. 

The English Company Peated Single Malt was named Best Other Whiskey (in a field fo 53 whiskeys of all types from all over the world) in the 2013 San Francisco World Spirits Competition. 

The 2013 Beverage Testing Institute called it a "civilized balance" of malt and smoke.
