Waxhouse Whisky Company was formed in 2018 by 3 friends who administer the St Albans Whisky Club. Their mission was a simple one. To bottle beautiful whiskies that they know their club members would love to drink. And, by extension, everyone. They source casks that scream out that they deserve to be bottled and shared.
The name Waxhouse points to the club's heritage. The Waxhouse Gate is an iconic cultural landmark in historic St Albans. It is a stone’s throw from the pub where the club regularly meet. Originally it was the site of the candle makers, where pilgrims would buy their candles before entering St Albans Cathedral. It later served as the city’s jail and was an important meeting point for rabble rousers and rebels during the Peasants’ Revolt.
The wax seals on these whiskies are a nod to this history. The beautiful labels are all about transparency. Here you will find the distillery, the date distilled, the date bottled, the cask type and the age of each whisky.
