Brewer and pub operator Bath Ales has launched a limited-edition English single malt spirit made from its own wort. 

Only 100 bottles of Gem Aqua Vitae will be available from the West Country brewer's on-site shop, the company said today. Gem Aqua Vitae is distilled in collaboration with The English Spirit Distillery.

Last year, Bath Ales appointed a new managing director, with Robin Couling replacing Roger Jones.
