Distilling: our thoughts on English Whisky regulations

In the print edition of Spirits Business from November 2018 and online now, our director David (along with Dan from the Cotswold Distillery, Andy from the East London Liquor Company, and Paul from The Lakes Distillery) was asked for his thoughts on the English whisky market and what the impact of imposing regulations for English whisky could be.

Enjoying: Spirit of Yorkshire goes to Westminster

Maturing Malt Hits the Road. On the 18th of December, our 004 Maturing Malt went on a trip with our Whisky Director to Westminster.

Living: BBC Look North at the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery

Earlier this month we were really pleased to welcome Spencer Stokes from Look North to the Distillery. He and his crew spent most of the day with us, chatting about our ethos, our spirit so far and our aims for our single malt next year. They filmed at the Distillery and up at the farm and brewery too. To hear about our ambitions (and see the Distillery for yourself if you’ve not been before) then head here to see an edited version of the show.

Enjoying: The Yorkshire Whisky Festival

***UPDATE***… we won! We’re really pleased to say that we won both ‘Dram of the Day’ and ‘Stand of the Day.’ Given the calibre of Distilleries and Single Malts at the show, we’re incredibly proud and honoured to have been awarded these two accolades. We love York, and the work The Whisky Lounge does, and so we were really pleased to be invited to the Yorkshire Whisky Festival at the Racecourse this weekend (6th October). Throughout the afternoon and into the evening, we shared cask samples, chatted about our ethos... Read More
