Malt Disney

Armin has kindly pointed out that I missed at least one Scottish single malt in my list of 27 July; Kilchoman, a farm-scale distillery and the first to be built in Islay for over a hundred years.

Meanwhile Alet, who despite living within sniffing distance of the Stellenbosch winelands of the Cape apparently keeps a fond winter eye on the whisky world, reports that there are, or will shortly be, two whisky distilleries in England. These are the English Whisky Company in Norfolk, whose first batch of St.George's Whisky is maturing, and Lakeland Distillers of Kendal, whose Barley Bridge distillery in the Lake District is currently under construction. Both will be visitor attractions.

If Scottish whisky is 'scotch', will English whisky be 'englch', I wonder?
