Our Whisky

We want our whisky to be a spirit for sharing, and to echo the memorable hospitality of Northumberland’s Golden Age

Our Single Malt Whisky will be our hero spirit, made from the finest local barley nurtured by our farmers, distilled on site into our golden spirit, to be shared with our community across the globe. 

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.

Hear the story of our whisky by booking tickets for our distillery tour and tasting, or why not sample our spirits  for yourself from our online shop including our new Tácnbora Batch 01.

Our first whisky blend

We are proud to announce that our very first whisky blend will be released for sale on 1st November 2022. We believe that ‘Tácnbora’ – meaning Standard Bearer in Old English - is a fitting name for the spirit that comes before all the others. It also reflects the writings of Bede which recorded that in the 7th century King Edwin was always preceded by a standard bearer carrying a staff topped with a goat’s head – the shape of which has become our logo.

The blend itself is also a thoughtful mix of Scottish and Irish whiskies – reflecting the peoples that would have made up the Anglo-Saxon Northumbrians.
