Let us do the driving and enjoy some of Norfolk's best tipples and a lunch!
We shall start the day with a trip to East Harling to the Norfolk Whisky Company to enjoy a tour of the distillery followed by a few samples (!) and lunch. In the afternoon we shall head to North Norfolk and visit the award winning Moongazer Brewery for maybe a few more tastings.....
The English Whisky Company
"We are England's oldest and most prestigious whisky distillery. An independent family owned business, born out of the Nelstrop families passion for single malt Whisky and built for the sole intention of handcrafting the finest English Single Malt Whisky.
Based in Norfolk, using locally sourced barley and fresh water from the Brecklands aquifer, which runs beneath the distillery, our Master Distiller meticulously handcrafts the spirit, which is then filled into the finest oak casks and left to mature for years. Once matured to perfection, specific casks are selected to be hand bottled on site and released as English Single Malt Whisky.
We supply a large range of businesses across the UK, from small farm shops and delis to specialist wine and spirits suppliers and wholesalers and distribute to many countries across the world.
Take a guided tour of our magnificent distilling floor and barrel warehouse. Discover how our wonderful single malt whiskies are made and how St George’s Distillery became the first distillery in England to produce whisky in over 100 years. Finish your tour with the tasting of 1 award winning English Whisky and 1 liqueur. Receive a £5 discount voucher which can be redeemed on English Whisky branded items (RRP over £30) - (see terms and conditions) and receive a mini tasting glass to take home (over 18’s only)."
"The Norfolk Brewhouse is owned and run by Rachel and David Holliday – a couple with a passion for crafting distinctive, high-quality beers. Our brewery has breathed new life into a redundant old barn, on an arable farm, in North Norfolk. Its rural setting – right in the heart of the country’s finest malting barley region – is just the start.
We make the most of all that is around us; chalk-filtered water from the brewery’s own well and Norfolk’s finest malting barley. Incidentally, we feed the brewing grains to some very grateful cows.
Even the names of our beers – Moon Gazer Ale and StubbleStag premium lager – were inspired by the wildlife around us, reflecting as they do the stunning sight of wild hares transfixed by the moon. All great stuff, but add to this some modern thinking, modern hop varieties, nifty innovation and some very up-to-date brewing kit and you get hand-crafted beers which ensure that every drop is as good as the last."
