The Tour de Yorkshire will pass through Hunmanby on stage 3 (4th May), as it takes a very circuitous route from Bridlington to Scarborough (definitely not just going straight along the A165!)
We’re big fans of cycling here at the Spirit of Yorkshire and we’re thrilled that Hunmanby features on the course again – it’s not often you get world class cyclists flying through the village – and so we’ve got a few things planned in honour of the event…
Key times: the women will pass through the village at around 9am, with the men at around 12 noon
TdY Pairing Evening
One for our foodie fans – whilst the highlight of the Tour de Yorkshire will obviously be whizzing through Hunmanby (!), it’s also going to grace the whole of the county. So on Friday 3rd May, we’ll be hosting some of Yorkshire’s best food producers and pairing their wares with our spirit, and having a good old chat about the tastes and flavours as we go. Tickets are £20 for 5 drams of our maturing spirit (with some never seen before cask samples fresh from the warehouse), each paired with a different Yorkshire food or drink. Buy tickets via the events page here.
Early opening and
free hot drink with food
On the day, The Pot Still Coffee Shop will be open from 8 am, with a special offer of a free hot drink when you order food (not including cake). We’re not quite on the course but you can park with us and it’s a short walk into the village to see the racing.
Trophies and the Community Roadshow
We’re really proud of our community and we aim to give back as much as possible. At the end of March, we welcomed Welcome to Yorkshire to the Distillery twice: firstly to showcase the two trophies to the general public, and secondly to hold a roadshow to help local businesses and the community to understand how they can make the most of the tour. The Pot Still Coffee Shop was packed on both days, and the whole team was especially excited to meet the (very very shiny!) trophies.
