Distilling: ‘Best in Class’ and two Golds at international whisky awards


We’re celebrating after winning two gold medals at prestigious world whisky competitions.

Filey Bay Flagship was awarded a gold medal and Best in Class at the Whiskies of the World competition, and Filey Bay STR Finish won gold at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition.

“The Whiskies of the World Awards is an annual celebration of excellence in whisky from around the globe. With a distinguished panel of judges and a commitment to quality, the awards recognise the craftsmanship, diversity, and innovation within the whisky industry. We’re delighted and proud that Filey Bay Flagship beat stiff competition to win a coveted gold medal and to be judged Best in Class.

“In addition, Filey Bay STR Finish was the only English whisky to be awarded a gold medal at the New York World Wine and Spirits Competition. It’s very rewarding to be putting English whisky on the world whisky map by winning two gold medals at international competitions.”

David Thompson, Managing Director and Co-Founder

Light, fruity and creamy, Filey Bay Flagship single malt whisky is made from field to bottle with 100% homegrown barley and is the culmination of our ex-Bourbon matured style.

Filey Bay STR Finish’s primary maturation in ex-bourbon is followed by a secondary maturation, the finish, in Shaved Toasted and Re-charred ex-red wine casks that bring a deep colour and red fruit flavours to the whisky.
