St George’s Whisky

The first Single Malt England has ever produced will be ready for Christmas 2009. St George’s Distillery in Norfolk will be selling it’s first release of it’s Single Malt Whisky. So far, they have only been selling different “chapters” representing different ages and peating levels of their new spirit.

I am interested to try this but I feel a little torn. Why? I am not sure. I don’t mind America, Japan, New Zealand, Australia, Sweden and Wales, among others, making their own whisky. So why does it feel wrong that the English are? Maybe I have been indoctrinated by the SNP? Maybe I have a slight fear that like everything else (football, rugby, cricket, tiddelywinks) England will become better than us at it?

I guess I can have one small crumb of comfort. We have over 90 Single Malt Distilleries in Scotland. We just have to treat it like a Derby Match with the Auld Enemy. And with 90 Distilleries ganging up on this one new boy, victory is assured (hopefully)

Check out their Website. The demand for their first release is very high.
