Whisky galore

NOR­FOLK is now ‘firmly on the whisky map’, says farmer and English Whisky Com­pany owner An­drew Nel­strop, whose St Ge­orge’s Dis­tillery, in Roud­ham, launched the first batch of Malt ’n’ Rye, last month, a sin­gle-grain whisky, and the sec­ond in its The Nor­folk range

Lim­ited to just 1,962 bot­tles, Malt ’n’ Rye—which is rich in tof­fee, green ap­ples, spice, milk choco­late, orange cit­rus and herbal lemon thyme with a long, dry fin­ish—is one of three sin­gle-grain whiskies, along­side Farm­ers and the yet-to-bere­leased Parched.

The cat in a bowler hat on the la­bel is a nod to the nearby Holkham es­tate, where the dis­tinc­tive head­gear was in­vented as a hard hat for game­keep­ers. A 500ml bot­tle of The Nor­folk Malt ’n’ Rye costs £49. Visit www.english whisky.co.uk or tele­phone 01953 717939.
