Spirit of Yorkshire is Yorkshire's first ever single malt whisky distillery, located in Hunmanby, near Filey Bay on the Yorkshire Coast.

For Spirit of Yorkshire it is about doing things properly. That is why they're obsessed with every step of the distilling process, from grain to glass. Mentored by renowned whisky expert Dr. Jim Swan, their instinctive approach is to create a whisky that doesn’t just replicate Scotch. This doesn’t mean they rely on blind luck, they take the best of tradition and apply new thinking to create something unique.

All the barley used is grown in Hunmanby, on the family farm, and the water is taken from two sources, sunk deep into the chalk. The team is in control at every stage of the growing and distilling process, from choosing the variety of barley and how it is grown, right through to bottling on site at the distillery. Very few other distilleries in the UK can claim this

Spirit of Yorkshire have invested in two of the largest Forsyth pot stills operating in the UK outside of Scotland. They also added a four-plate copper column into their process that works in tandem with the spirit still to add variance to the Spirit of Yorkshire distillery. This is all part of the commitment to combining tradition with new thinking to create something out of the ordinary. The stills were fired up for the first time in May 2016 and there are already thousands casks of various types being used, including sherry butts and bourbon casks, all of which will help create the subtle, complex flavours of the unique spirit.

FILEY BAY PEAT CASK

Primarily matured in first-fill bourbon casks laid down in the spring and summer of 2017 before a secondary maturation in peated casks tying together the Yorkshire coast with the West coast of Scotland making this release very different from all the previous releases.
