Event description

Description

Join us for a light lunch before gaining an insight and behind the scenes tour of St. George's Distillery with Andrew Nelstrop, descendant of the Nelstrop family who have a 600 year old tradition of growing and processing grain.

St George’s is the home to The English Whisky Co. The beautiful distillery was designed and built by the Nelstrop family for the specific purpose of producing the very finest English Single Malt Whisky.

Why England and more specifically Why Roudham, Norfolk? Well, there are only two main ingredients in whisky, barley and water and Norfolk has them both. They draw the purest, cleanest water from the Breckland aquifer deep beneath the distillery and as Norfolk is one of the world’s premier growing barley regions, the supply is plentiful and local.

The only other thing needed to create the very best malt whisky is oak casks which are supplied direct from America, having first been used for the maturation of bourbon.

The whisky is batch made by hand with no computers, filled into casks and then left to sleep until the distillers consider it perfect for bottling, which of course is also done by hand - one bottle at a time.

Places are limited for this event which is being organised by Family Business United as part of East Anglia Family Business Day 2018 and will include a tasting prior to the event concluding.

No refunds will be made available for this event but tickets can be transferred to colleagues.
