Cask Owner Day 2024

Cask Samples and Entry

Cask Owner Day is our way to say thank you to you for your support of the Distillery and the whisky we're making here.

Please read the following section carefully, then click the button that says 'CLICK HERE' to RSVP and request your Cask Samples.



The Cask Owner Day invite is for two people per cask. This ensures that the day can stay small and intimate enough to be really special. It means we can pour lots of samples and really give you a great 'behind the scenes' experience! If more than two people connected to your cask would like to attend, additional tickets are available to purchase for a small fee. If you have any questions about this, please give us a call.


Cask Samples

The best place for your spirit is in your cask! We recommend only 2 x 10cl samples per cask each year maximum and these are drawn as part of the cask offer. We will only draw samples from your cask if you request them. If you require more, these carry an additional charge.

All on the

Same Page


We're always trying to make the Cask Sample request process more straightforward! This year everything can be done really simply via our website. Follow the instructions below and your choices will be added to a basket of the website. Please note - you'll need to 'check out' even if the price is £0.

The final date for Cask Sample requests is Friday 28th June 2024.

1 - Click the button below that says 'Click here'

2 - Choose the relevant amounts, enter your cask number and click 'Add to Basket'

3 - Follow the checkout process as usual. If the total is £0 then you will not be charged anything.

4 - Once your order is placed, you will receive an order confirmation email

5 - Delivery to UK Mainland addresses is free. If you live outside of the UK Mainland (based on postcodes set by our courier) then we’re afraid we can’t commit to sending samples free-of-charge. Please choose ‘collect in store’ and we’ll contact you about shipping costs based on where you are.

6 - If you will be collecting in person, please choose 'collect in store.' You can then collect the samples at Cask Owner Day, or from the distillery any day from 1st August onwards.

7 - Don't worry if you can't remember your Cask Number! Just put the name of the person who is on the Cask Certificate instead (this might be you or it could be a friend) and we can sort the rest.


Some things to watch out for...

If your cask is owned by more than one person, please ensure that only one of you is submitting the RSVP and Cask Sample Requests. Otherwise it becomes very confusing!

If you would like samples sent to multiple shipping addresses, please call us or email us before submitting your requests

If you own more than one cask, you can either submit multiple orders (you will need to check out for each cask) or email us and we’ll sort it out with you!

If your cask is less than 12 months old, we're afraid you'll need to wait until next year for samples

Masterclasses need to be bought separately - please see further down this page for the link

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to give us a call or email us on [email protected]

Cask Owner Day 2024


We've got four fantastic Masterclasses lined up this year, sharing some of our very best whisky, and really getting into detail on our production and creation process.

Masterclass One

Directors' Choice

Whisky Director Joe Clark, and Managing Director David Thompson, choose their favourite Filey Bay drams for this masterclass. They'll delve into the detail of each dram, and how, why and what it was released for. This hour long Masterclass will be in a separate marquee and tickets must be booked via the link below.

Masterclass Two

Fresh from the Cask

Freshly pulled samples will be the order of the day for this hour-long ticketed Masterclass. Selected by our Whisky Director Joe Clark, to show the range and depth of what's maturing in our whisky store. Naturally, they'll all be cask strength. This Masterclass will be in a separate marquee and tickets must be booked via the link below.

Masterclass Three

Legacy & Conservation

This 45 minute Masterclass will focus in our impact on our area. Covering sustainability, ethos and why we always aim to act before we talk! This Masterclass will be on the main stage and will be free to join.

Masterclass Four

Made of Yorkshire

For our fourth Masterclass, we'll be joining together with a brilliant local producer who shares our philosophies and approach to production and sustainability, with tasters shared too! This 45 minute Masterclass will be on the main stage and will be free to join.

Important to



Dogs: whilst we love Dogs, this year we'll be operating a no-dogs policy (other than assistance and support dogs) on the distillery site, both inside and outside.

Children: Children are very welcome to our Cask Owner Day and we love inspiring the next generation of farmers, distillers and fans! However we regret that under-6s cannot come on the tour inside the still house. This includes babes-in-arms. If you will be bringing under 18s with you to Cask Owner Day, please RSVP for the adults and drop us an email about the children so we'll know who to expect.

Special Release

Filey Bay Yorkshire Day 2024

The star of the show... Filey Bay Yorkshire Day 2024, our annual Special Release, will be ready and launching on the day. Exclusive to the distillery and limited to 2 per customer. More information about this whisky coming soon.

the hub

The Marquee

Home to the bar and the stage, the main marquee will be the hub of the day. Full of live music, "conversations with" and possibly a couple of tastings too.



Every thirty minutes, Tours will head around the distillery, showcasing the hows, whys and whats of Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery and Filey Bay Whisky. These are free for everyone (though no under 6s we're afraid).


Producers & Craftspeople

Alongside the Masterclass, local producers will be at the distillery, sharing their stories and offering samples, as well as selling produce & products for you to take home.

Food &


We'll have lunch for sale on-site and, of course, the Wold Top Brewery van serving a range of beers (including the delicious low alcohol 'Intuition'). The Pot Still Coffee Shop will be open for coffee, tea and cake, and there'll be plenty of whisky to enjoy.



When will my whisky be delivered?

Our deliveries are made during business hours, Monday-Saturday, and will be delivered within 2-3 working days. You will receive email and/or SMS notifications too.

How do I qualify for free delivery?

When you spend £100 or more, free postage will automatically be applied to your basket (UK Mainland only).

Can I click and collect my order?

Absolutely! Select ‘Collect in Store’ as a delivery option at checkout. You’ll receive an email when it’s ready for you to collect from the distillery.

How do I know if this whisky is for me?

Buying online makes it tricky to try – we get that! Each product page has tasting notes and illustrations to help you understand the Filey Bay flavour profiles. If you’d like to try in person and you’re in Yorkshire, head to the distillery for a tour or to try the whiskies the distillery shop. Further afield? Head to our Stockists page to find your local retailer, and head there to have a taste!
