BACKGROUND ON THE ENGLISH WHISKY COMPANY
The English Whisky Co was the first whisky distillery in England in over a century. When they started, they wanted to be the first micro-distillery in England, but Customs and Excise wouldn’t let them have anything smaller than 1,800 litre stills. 1,800 litre stills are pretty big, bigger than some of the ones in Scottish distilleries. So the English Whisky Co said go big, or go home. We like that mentality and this one is certainly a big and bold and peaty whisky. And we really like that!

About our Bottles
For us, one of the best aspects of a good single malt whisky is its ability to bring people together. So when we created our bottles we wanted to design something that felt like a decanter - meant to be passed around a group of friends, new and old, as they enjoy sharing a dram together.
Our bottles have a good weight to them, making them feel substantial and giving them the presence a good whisky deserves. We've offset the label, so that the whisky is centre stage; it shows the natural colour of the liquid clearly and proudly.
The label clearly and transparently shows you all the key information, including: the nature of the liquid (for example, single malt scotch) where it was distilled; how old it is; and how strong it is. All our liquids are natural colour and non chill filtered.
Our bottles come in two sizes: 700ml, which is our standard for our main releases; and for some of our expressions, 100ml minis.
