Our English Whisky and Spirits

The same landscape that drew ancient royalty to hold court and offer hospitality to peoples from around the world today gives us the finest malting barley and the purest Cheviot water with which to create our Single Malt Whisky. We want our whisky to be shaped for sharing, and to be central to those moments of life that matter. Our Single Malt will be our hero spirit, an export product that will hold its own in international markets.

The journey to create the home for our whisky has been a special one. Our stills received an emotional welcome from the whole community when they arrived in town, and are now in place as the beating heart of our distillery.

Our Provenance

As a location for a whisky distillery – ours couldn’t be better. The purest of water is brought up from a borehole beneath our feet; some of the finest malting barley is grown in fields within sight; Simpson’s Malt, the internationally renowned fifth generation malt company, is under 30 minutes away by road; the climate is all a distiller could wish for. 

The fertility of the valley will allow us to make the most of contemporary barley strains already so sought after north of the border, whilst exploring heritage barleys that might have been around in Anglo-Saxon times. Ultimately, we will be respectful of the traditional craft of creating great whisky – because that is what we are here to do.

“There will be five very special ingredients to our whisky – our barley, our water, our yeast, our wood – and most important of all, our drinker”

Ben Murphy, Head Distiller.
