Tasting Notes

Taking our time

With a first maturation in ex-bourbon, bringing creamy notes to our light and fruity spirit style, we then finish this whisky in another cask type for a second maturation. STR casks are ex-red wine casks that have been shaved, toasted and recharred, creating the perfect environment for our light and creamy whisky to draw out the delicious red fruit flavours from the wood.

Dr. Jim Swan

This way of treating red wine casks (STR) was pioneered by the late, great Dr. Jim Swan who consulted and supported us as we set up the distillery and began distilling. Treating the casks in this way tempers the tannins in the red wine casks and allows the flavour inside the wood to really come to the fore.

    The Name

    Our local area is hugely important to us and so naturally it’s where we’ve found the name for our Single Malt: Filey Bay. We see the sea and the curve of the bay from the distillery window. We had lists of names but we just kept coming back to this.



    Our bespoke bottle brings together the textures of the farm, the soil, the beach and the sky. Pick it up, look closely underneath and you'll see a secret phrase... "Proudly Made of Yorkshire." Because it is.
