Trip Planner: Europe / UK / England / Yorkshire / North Yorkshire / Scarborough District / Filey / Hunmanby / Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery
At the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery in Hunmanby, we make Filey Bay, the county’s first single malt whisky. We’re obsessed with distilling, from grain to glass. Our instinctive approach is all about taking the best of tradition and applying new thinking. We didn’t set out to just replicate Scotch, but to create a whisky that is filled with our own unique spirit and that of our local area.Plan your visit to Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Filey attractions planner.
The distillery is sited close to where we live and work on our farm. All our ingredients have impeccable provenance. We’re committed to making every drop of our whisky from first principles. We only use locally and sustainably produced ingredients – all the barley and spring water we use is grown and sourced here, on our family farm. These are the same ingredients that go into the Great Taste Award-winning beers at our sister company, the Wold Top Brewery, which also makes the initial alcohol (wash) needed to create and distill our whisky. This unique approach and still set-up was pioneered with the guidance of renowned whisky expert, Dr. Jim Swan – designed to get the best from our ingredients and create a unique and distinctive whisky.
The distillery is open for tours, led by the distillers themselves. As well as seeing behind the scenes of a working distillery, visitors will enjoy exclusive tastings of our New Make Spirit. Visitors are invited to enjoy a proper cup of coffee and tasty dishes made from local produce in the Pot Still Coffee Shop. The curious can also discover ‘whiskies of the world’ in the distillery shop, along with Spirit of Yorkshire merchandise.
We hope to welcome you to the distillery soon.
Cheers, The Spirit of Yorkshire Team.
