Distilling: Eight years since we filled our first-ever cask of new make spirit.

0 comments

Join us as we look back and celebrate the eight-year anniversary since we filled our first-ever cask of new make spirit.

Eight years ago today, on June 14th 2016, we filled our first-ever cask of new make spirit. The late Dr. Jim Swan, our friend, and one of the world’s most renowned whisky experts, described our new make spirit as “superb in quality” which remains one of the greatest compliments we have received to this day. It was a patient, but well worth it, wait until October 2019, when we released our first bottling of Filey Bay Single Malt Whisky.

Filey Bay First Release became Yorkshire’s first ever single malt. Made here in Hunmanby on the Yorkshire Coast by us from field to bottle. Representing over eight years of planning and over three years of whisky-making here at the distillery.

Filey Bay First Release combined our pot and column distillates and was matured predominantly in first-fill bourbon casks with a subtle sherry influence. A selection of just 16 casks laid down in the spring and summer of 2016, carefully chosen from our warehouse and gently married together here at the distillery, yielding just 6000 bottles.
