We had a cracking week at the Great Yorkshire Show earlier this month, almost literally working our socks off for four days in the Food Hall.
We had to replace stock three times and both Amy and Dave lost their voices but it was absolutely worth it to pour, talk, share and sell Filey Bay Whisky with the over 100,000 visitors to the show!
Highlights of the show:
- Amy being interviewed by ITV Calendar
- Jenni meeting DEFRA Minister Mark Spencer, talking to him all about field to bottle whisky and regen agriculture (thanks to DeliciouslYorkshire for the introduction)
- The farm being named an East Yorkshire finalist for the Yorkshire Agricultural Society’s Tye Trophy (separate post on this coming soon!)
- A lot of very fluffy and pretty sheep
- The world’s biggest combine (honestly, it’s massive)
- Dave and Amy having an impromptu night ‘out out’ drinking F iley Bay cocktails in Harrogate
- And of course, meeting so many brilliant, innovative and literally delicious producers, farmers and chefs from all across the county, who create outstanding things here in Yorkshire.
The Taste of Yorkshire
Filey Bay Flagship was the show’s best seller, with Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #3 coming a close second! Watching people’s eyes light up as they try Filey Bay whisky for the first time is a brilliant thing to see and we’re already booking our spot in the Food Hall for next year. See you there!
What’s the Great Yorkshire Show?
One of the largest Agricultural Shows in the UK, the Great Yorkshire Show is a celebration of farming, food and the countryside. It takes place at the showground in Harrogate every July and 2023 was the 164th edition of the show!
What’s an Agricultural show?
Good question! This recent Guardian article talks about Agricultural shows and why they’re so popular outside of the farming community too.
