Whisky production which had stopped in England well over 100 years ago. But in December 2006 the first 29 barrels of English whisky were produced using the best barley which is grown in Norfolk and the local Breckland water. By August 2007 they opened to the public with a visitor centre, fantastic whisky shop and tours.
Since the original distillations back in 2006, thousands of casks have been filled, many of which are still maturing nicely in warehouses. The distillery creates both unpeated and peated whisky, as well as having a rolling programme of cask trials. The cask trials have resulted in some wonderful whiskies as can be seen in with their Small Batch releases. This is certainly Home Farm House’s whisky of choice and nobody should leave Norfolk without having sampled a glass or two.
The distillery tours are excellent and range from their daily St George’s Tour with a guided tasting, to their Distillers Private Tasting Tour.
