Description

Plenty of English whisky was produced in the 19th century, but when the stills of the Lea Valley Distillery fell silent in 1903, nothing happened for almost exactly a century. Founded in 1747, Gulliver's enjoyed great success in its early years, with Samuel Gulliver travelling the continent and bringing home the finest wines and spirits. We currently have three core expressions: our original ex-Bordeaux Cask Single Malt, our American Oak ex-Bourbon Cask Single Malt and our ex-Oloroso Sherry Cask Single Malt, all carefully crafted in our distillery in the Old Town Hall, Bovey Tracey.

Crafted in small batches, the exquisite Dartmoor Gin 1890 is a celebration of the finest ingredients and botanicals sourced from the idyllic landscapes of Dartmoor and Devon. Ltd got permission to build the first registered whisky distillery in England for over a century; it first release of single malt occurred in 2009; which became the only English Whisky to have been bottled and released for over 100 years. Scottish whisky and Irish whiskey have been popular for many years, but it's time for English malts and single grains to shine. In 2013 The London Distillery Company began production of the first single malt whisky in London since Lea Valley Distillery closed in 1903.

On November 18, 2023 Birmingham hosted its second English Whisky Festival with 32 distilleries participating in the event. However, in the past decade or so, a few brave souls have decided that England should be known for distilling whisky as well. Indeed, the contemporary English whisky scene is barely 20 years old, with most of England’s 40 or so distilleries opening in the last 5 to 10 years.The General Wine Company sources wines from all over the world, but with a particular focus on small, independent producers. Indulge in this exceptional creation and experience the true essence of Dartmoor and Devon in every sip. However, the production of English single malt whisky ceased around 1905 with the closure of Lea Valley Distillery, in Stratford, London, by the Distillers Company Limited, one of the forerunners of Diageo.

Oloroso and Pedro Ximénez sherries have been used to season some casks used to mature the whisky and they have given the spirit a full array of sherried oak flavours, from chocolate coated raisins and burnt orange to Christmas pudding spices and sweet, syrupy ginger. The popularity of rye whisky is on the rise and you can now find several English versions sitting alongside some of the more familiar American ryes at drinks retailers.

Lea Valley Distillery, Stratford, Essex (founded in the late 19th century) — produced both grain and malt whisky. With fifteen carefully curated botanicals, reminiscent of the summer season in Devon, this gin offers a distinct juniper-forward London Dry Gin experience that truly embodies the rugged beauty of the Dartmoor National Park.
