English Spirit Distillery


At English Spirit, our aim is to distil the world's finest spirits & liqueurs. No shortcuts, no compromises. This means distilling every one of our spirits ourselves, from scratch, in genuinely small batches. We employ every technique available to us to achieve the highest quality and best taste; regardless of time, effort or expense.

Founded in 2011 by Dr John Walters, we consider ourselves to be England’s original small batch distillers. In that time, we have accumulated an unrivalled wealth of distilling experience, distilling well over 100 different products for ourselves and our clients. In fact, we were the first to distil rum in the UK.

We celebrate England through the seasonality of our ingredients and the heritage of our sites in Essex and Cornwall. Come and see our Grade II listed distillery barn at Great Yeldham Hall; learn how spirits are made; sample from our award winning luxury collection of vodkas, gins, rums, and much more; and pick up exclusive purchases in our distillery shop that you won't find anywhere else.
