Overview

Making really great single malt whisky in England is paramount to what we stand for here at St. George's. Why England? Why not? We have fantastic water in the Breckland aquifer beneath our feet, we have the barley, the maltings, the yeast and now the distillery. We don't add colour, we don't add flavour, we let the barrels do that for us. Our whisky is batch made by hand with no computers, matured in fine casks, bottled on site using our own water and is non chill-filtered. We are really proud of these things and believe you will taste the difference too. The Distillery is open daily from 9am - 5.30Pm throughout the year (with the exception of Christmas day, Boxing day, New Year's day), running regular tours of the working part of the distillery.

Great lunch, great service and the world whisky tour is worth every penny. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough. 😁

We visited with a very large party and we were well looked after. We were split into two and were given an introductory talk and coffee before entering the distillery. We were shown how the process works and then given samples. It was very interesting....More

On visiting the kitchen, the large breakfast was overpriced and over cooked. £10.95 you would expect at least two bits of toast and the bacon well (bacon rashes) was well over conked. Jacket potatoe was yesterday’s potatoe without a doubt. Wouldn’t recommended the food.

There are quite a few steps to negotiate. Call the Distillery and ask how they might accommodate you. They are extremely helpful and would want you to get as much at of their tour as possible.
