Our Provenance

As a location for a whisky distillery – ours in Wooler 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 farmers 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.
