Adnams English Rye Malt Whisky is made using rye grown by Jonathan Adnams at his farm in Reydon, which is located just a few miles away from the brewery and distillery in Southwold, as well as locally grown barley. Rye has been grown in Reydon for centuries, and the village derives its name from the Old English Words “Rey,” meaning “Rye,” and “Don,” meaning “Hill.” In 1872, the Adnams family purchased the Sole Bay Brewery, which dates back to at least 1345. The brewery was renamed Adnams, and for nearly 150 years, this family-run brewery has produced excellent beers for the local community. In 2010, Adnams opened their Copper House Distillery and has been producing incredible craft spirits ever since. This whisky received a 98 point rating from IWSC and was named as one of Whisky Advocate’s Top 20 Whiskies of the Year.
