Cotswolds Distillery “Welcome back to our first newsletter of 2019!” – English Whisky News


January Newsletter 2019

Welcome back to our first newsletter of the year. It’s been a cold, cold month but we’re still working hard to make sure we get our goods out to you all!


What a week for our Single Malt Whisky 

Our Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky has been the star of the show this month, receiving some fantastic feedback from some of the biggest food and drink gurus out there.

We woke up on Saturday morning only to spot our whisky on ITV James Martin’s Saturday Morning show, where celebrated wine critic Oz Clarke and James Martin himself shared their thoughts – definitely worth a watch!

Elsewhere, The Evening Standard recommended our flagship whisky as the perfect alternative to a classic Scotch for Burns Night, and Phillip Schofield also had some good words to say in Waitrose Weekend.

With distilleries becoming increasingly popular south of the Scottish border, it’s brilliant to see us flying the flag for English whisky!


Not forgetting our cask strength…

Just as we were about to send out our newsletter, we received some fantastic news – our Founder’s Choice Single Malt Whisky has been named as Whisky of the Month over on Whiskyexperts.

Fortunately for the ‘translate page’ option, the review makes a great read. Our newest whisky has been described as having ‘great body’ and a ‘beautiful, harmonious balance’ of flavours – we couldn’t ask for more!

A quick update on our visitor centre 

If you’ve stopped by the distillery recently, you’ll have noticed that our new visitor centre is very nearly finished.

The windows have been fitted, 65% of the Cotswold stone floor has been put in place, and the timber on the exterior is up.

The stairs are due to go up within the next couple of weeks, along with the interior timber cladding.

We’re hoping to unveil the new building in April – it won’t be long until we’re all settled in our new home!

A very warm welcome to the team

We’ve welcomed a few friendly faces over the past month or two as our brilliant team continues to grow.

In the office, Lucy has joined us as our new Sales Coordinator, keeping our accounts and sales team in order!

We’ve also had a couple of new additions to the production side of the distillery – Peter has joined our bottling team and Romy has helped lighten the load as our new Warehouse Operative.

Out and about next month

It’s a quiet time of year for events, with this cold weather making everyone want to curl up in front of the fire instead of heading off outside, but Edward will be out championing the Cotswolds cause at a couple of exciting international events in February.

First up, Ed will be attending the Uisge consumer fair in Helsinki, before jetting off to Mumbai for The Vault Biennale – a new premium spirits festival to arrive in the Indian city which will be showcasing some of the best luxury beverages in the world.

As always, keep an eye out on our social media for any upcoming events.
