Whisky distillery Spirit of Yorkshire has launched Filey Bay, thought to be Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky.
Produced in the coastal village of Hunmanby of north Yorkshire, Filey Bay is inspired by the bay that is in sight of the distillery.
The 46% ABV single malt is a combination of two distillate styles, matured in select oak casks. It is described as light and fruity, with notes of vanilla, honey, citrus and caramel.
Spirit of Yorkshire co-founder David Thompson said: “Filey Bay is unique. Not only is it Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky, but we are one of only a handful of whisky makers in the UK that have a full field to bottle process.
“Our production allows us to create two different spirit styles, using a pot and column still configuration to create a flavour profile that is unlike any other malt whisky. Even our bottle is bespoke, bringing together our land and coast, and our mascot, the gannet.
“Every bottle of Filey Bay represents the passion and dedication of everyone involved. You only get to release the county’s first whisky once and we’re thrilled to now share it with customers old and new.”
The first release of Filey Bay Single Malt Whisky is limited to 6,000 bottles.
