The Norfolk Whisky Company has been given the green light to start work on the distillery at a village in the south of the county and is aiming to start production this September.
It has already drawn up plans and is set to use Forsyths to build the stills. It is also in talks with a 'well known' Scottish distiller with the aim of employing him to run the project.
Norfolk could well be the ideal place for an English distillery. It boasts some of the best barley in Britain (which it already 'exports' to distilleries in Scotland) and the new distillery will be built on an underground source of pure spring water. East Anglia's favourable climate should also benefit production.
The new distillery will have a shop, café and visitors' centre. There is no other registered distillery in England but St Austell Brewery in Cornwall is producing an amount of whisky in partnership with a local farmer.
Here is confirmation from the "Westmoreland Gazette" from October 2007:-
