About this deal

After putting the initial release of single malt (Chapter 6 in the saga) on our site, it sold out almost instantly. Even the spicy notes have a sweetness to them, with ginger the most obvious among them, and it has a long finish, helped by a slightly oily, viscous feel in the mouth. In 2013 The London Distillery Company began production of the first single malt whisky in London since Lea Valley Distillery closed in 1903. While most new English distilleries have been releasing their whiskies to a fanfare of marketing noise, Dartmoor Distillery has been going about its business much more quietly, allowing the quality of their products to do all the talking.

Consenting to these technologies will allow us to process data such as browsing behaviour or unique IDs on this site. To accelerate maturation, active casks of European, American, and Japanese oak are filled, which contribute lots of flavor to the whiskies, and these benefit from England’s much warmer climate than Scotland, leading to greater interaction between the oak and the spirit. Spirit of Yorkshire makes two different styles; both are laid down in the warehouse in first-fill bourbon casks, with smaller proportions filled into oloroso sherry casks and PX hogsheads. Only when it’s perfectly ready do we gently water it down with purified water from the Welsh marches, then gently non-chill filter to our hearty house strength of 42%. Each edition with have a unique cask finish, enabling you to build a collection of our various limited releases.On November 18, 2023 Birmingham hosted its second English Whisky Festival with 32 distilleries participating in the event. Eventually, he decided to combine bucolic bliss with his love of spirits and the rest, as they say, is whisky. years later, the whisky is delightful, with a hint of smoke and a wonderful taste of juicy dark fruits and ginger biscuits. The experts there employ a traditional process of floor-malting, turning the grain by hand over several days. Made with three different grains – wheat, barley and oats – this full-bodied whisky has an almost dessert-like character, with appealing baking spice, chocolate and coconut notes.

There are currently more than thirty whisky distilleries in England, and you can find the best of them here at House of Malt. The nose is full of tropical fruit and smattered with pepper; the palate runs away with decadent notes of heavily candied orange and burnt brown sugar, and dry apple and nutmeg join ahead of an oaky finish. Among its key characteristics is an initial fruitiness that conjures various sweet desserts, from banoffee pie to cherry tarts, and a shaving of chocolate orange. Production is split between the working farm and the distillery, with 4 tons of malted barley put through its mash tun and 10,000-liter fermenters annually, using equipment shared with the brewery.Wafts of rich dark fruits, almonds and vanilla are followed by a wonderful taste of fruit cake, digestive biscuits, honey and figs with a hint of chocolate, all topped off with a long and sweet finish. Proudly brought to you by The London Distillery Company these Whiskey’s have the distinction of being the distilled in London.

Now whisky is being made in neighbouring Suffolk, at the Adnams micro-distillery in Southwold, in Battersea at The London Distillery Company and, very soon, at The Lakes Distillery in northern Cumbria. Some of those sweet, vinous characteristics have transferred to the whisky, and it would make a great choice as a whisky aperitif or after-dinner sipper if you want to provide something a little different for you guests.

When anyone goes up against centuries of tradition – particularly in an industry that causes as much debate as whisky – there are bound to be naysayers who dismiss any newcomers at every opportunity. A lot of English whisky distilleries take inspiration from their Scottish neighbours when developing their casks, while sill adding their own unique twist to the drink.
