Shropshire is a historical area of the United Kingdom with roots going way back to the 10th century. The earliest industries of Shropshire took their rise from its abundant natural resources; the rivers supplying valuable fisheries; the vast forest areas abundance of timber; while the mineral products of the county had been exploited from remote times. As the forest areas were gradually cleared and brought under cultivation, the county became more exclusively agricultural. In 1343 Shropshire wool was rated at a higher value than that of almost any other English county, and in the 13th and 14th centuries. Said to be the birthplace of the Industrial Revolution, the county has so many resources, making it a perfect place to have a craft distillery.
