Filey Bay STR Finish
Distilled in 2016, this ‘field to bottle’ single malt spent years maturing in bourbon casks before transferring to be ‘finished’ in shaved, toasted and re-charred red wine barriques, which came from sunny Rioja vineyards in Spain.
Light and floral, with layers of summer berries and vanilla ice cream, there’s a sweet and oaky spiciness that hints at a fantastic glass of Spanish red wine.
About the Distillery ....
In May 2016, the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery's stills were fired up for the first time, beginning something unique in the area – the creation of Yorkshire's first ever single malt whisky. The distillery and it's founders are very connected to its home in Hunmanby on the Yorkshire Coast, with the barley used to make its whisky grown on its own family farm. The spirit is distilled in a pair of Forsyth stills, as well as a four-plate copper column still, while a variety of casks are used to mature the whisky. In October 2019, the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery released its first bottling of Filey Bay single malt.
