The English Whisky Co. has collected 15 Liquid Gold’s in Jim Murray’s 2015 Whisky Bible.
Continuing their year on year award winning streak, the company has produced the best whisky in Europe, their Chapter 14, according to Jim Murray, author of the famous Whisky Bible which was released earlier this week.
In what must be a blow to some of the world’s traditional distilling nations The English Whisky Co. not only produced the winning European whisky but also produced a further 14 whiskies that were deemed worthy of the coveted “Liquid Gold” Award which is presented only to whiskies scoring 94 points or higher each year.
Andrew Nelstrop, owner of The English Whisky Co. said, “I am thrilled that our whiskies are getting such recognition.
Our distillers do a tremendous job creating some of the world’s finest whiskies by complete dedication to ensuring perfection is achieved at every point of production, from sourcing the finest barley to bottling the whisky by hand at the distillery”
Chapter 14 is a classic single malt whisky, matured in ex- bourbon casks.
This limited edition whisky is bottled in small batches created form the marriage of just 4 casks for each bottling. Each cask is sampled and chosen by David Fitt, the head distiller, to create a delightfully balanced and gentle whisky full of flavour and character.
Chapter 14 is available at both 46% and cask strength.

The Nelstrop family have a 600 year old tradition of growing and processing grain. In 2005 they decided to build a distillery and make their own whisky, this would be England’s first whisky distillery in over 100years. The best barley is grown in Norfolk and the Breckland water is superb.
In December 2006 they were able to make the first 29 barrels of English whisky and in 2007 the distillery was officially opened by HRH Prince Charles.
