Open 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.

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.

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 Open Days 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.
