Filey Bay IPA Finish 12/01/2022

Distilling: Filey Bay IPA Finish

We love whisky and beer, which should come as no surprise to anyone reading this. We always get excited about a new release, but this one, in particular, is something really very special and completely unique. A release that takes our field to bottle whisky another step forward and flavours wise takes our whisky in a really exciting and different direction. Following the release of Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky in 2019, there hasn’t been a bottling as highly anticipated by the distillery team as this release. “Single malt whisky... Read More

Joe at Liverpool Whisky Festival 22/12/2021

Living: 2021 Whisky Festivals, Joe’s Version

Having over 18 months off from shows and events since we launched our whisky in late 2019, was very strange, to say the least. Being back out really has been great, on every level, not just for the brand we have built, but the customers we have finally had a chance to meet and our team too. One of the best parts of being back out there in whisky shows has been seeing our fans in the flesh. Despite being replicated ‘virtually’ throughout 2020, hearing the comments and watching the...

Living: 2021 Whisky Festivals, Amy’s Version

Working in a small and independent Distillery you get to experience all aspects of making whisky. Some fun, like smelling the casks before they’ve been filled with new make spirit, some a little less so. But the part of working at the Spirit Of Yorkshire Distillery I enjoy the most is getting out and sharing our whisky and our story. Flavour and drinks are things I have always been interested in, so when the opportunity to work in a distillery came up, I knew I wanted to be part of... Read More

2021 Festivals - Morgan's Version 21/12/2021

Living: 2021 Whisky Events, Morgan’s version

For me, the events and tastings I’ve enjoyed the most this year are with our retailers, restaurants and bars. I attended The Whisky Lounge York festival and honestly loved every minute, but when working with our trade customers there is more variance in the events. Here are a few examples this year… The Whisky Shop tasting, YorkFiley Bay whisky has been listed in The Whisky Shop, York since July and throughout we’d discussed a ticketed tasting event there. Obviously, with restrictions in place, we had to postpone and postpone until... Read More

2021 Festivals - David's Version 21/12/2021

Living: 2021 International Whisky Festivals, David’s version

Whilst the team have been here, there and everywhere with our whisky this year, I’ve had the pleasure of pouring Filey Bay whisky in Poland, Germany and Italy. First up, in Poland was Whisky Live Warsaw. Held at an old vodka distillery site, over two days with three sessions per day, we welcomed around 4000 people in total! Our importer Jarek Buss and his son Rafal organised the event and were over the moon to be out in the whisky world again after the lockdown. It was especially great to... Read More

Living: 2021 Whisky Festivals, Libby’s Version

The first time I stood in front of a crowd to talk about whisky, I knew that it definitely wasn’t going to be the last. Anyone who knows me can confirm I like to chat and by coincidence, my favourite thing about the whisky industry is the conversation. The best place for said conversation is whisky festivals… I attended two whisky festivals towards the end of 2019, York and Manchester. This little taster definitely got me hooked, ready and raring to go for a year of festivals in 2020, which... Read More

Moscatel Batch #2 27/08/2021

Distilling: Why Batches?

The production of single malt whisky is varied and complex with almost an infinite number of variables coming together to create the flavour spectrum that we see across all the different single malt whiskies made around the world. By its very nature, single malt whisky is a special thing. Not just because of the care and attention employed in its production, the use of high-quality equipment, ingredients, casks and the skills of those making it, but through the process of maturation and the many years, it takes to create it....
