A first for England! The Norfolk-based English Whisky Co will release a Triple Distilled Single Malt Whisky tomorrow (Thursday 15th October). This is the first Triple Distilled English whisky to be bottled and released in the Chapter Range.
This wonderfully light and gentle style of whisky is normally the preserve of Irish whiskey makers.
The distillery owner Andrew Nelstrop says “Our triple distilled whisky, known as Chapter 17, is a very limited release of 900 bottles from one of our first batches. We wanted to try a triple distilled to see how different it would be from our double distillation whiskies; the result has been a lighter, more delicate whisky that still retains the glorious taste profile normally associated with our whiskies. We are delighted with the result and look forward to releasing further batches in the years to come.”
Aroma: Vanilla custard, slightly citrus with a hint of orange, spotted dick and rich dark chocolate. Creamy toffee and butterscotch. Subtle notes of liquorice.
Taste: Vanilla, light citrus fruits. Slightly dry, dark chocolate, light honey. Again the subtle liquorice is there.
Along with this exciting new development, The English Whisky Co. has picked up several awards this year; It has been awarded 2 Great Taste Gold Awards for it’s Chapter 15 and Nelstrop’s PX. It has also been awarded 15 Liquid Gold awards by Jim Murray as well as being named as producer of European Whisky of the Year 2015.
