English Whisky.

It seems as though virtually every county in England produces either beer or cider, but amazingly The English Whisky Co. have become the first people since the 19th Century to produce whisky (at least in commercial sized batches) in England. I can't seem to find an explanation as to why whisky production stopped in England for over one hundred years, but now it's being produced in a corner of Norfolk, it might be a worth a visit to the distillery as they do tours Monday - Sunday. According to people who know about whisky it's supposed to be pretty good, each batch is called a Chapter, their 3 yr old Chapter 6 has already sold out.

I'm interested to see how it compares to the big Whisky producing countries, Scotland, Ireland, America and Japan.
