About Filey Bay

The folk at Spirit of Yorkshire distillery are farmers, brewers and distillers and so they are in control of every stage of the process. From choosing the variety of barley and how its grown, to their unique still configuration, right through to bottling at the distillery. They have even used their own IPA’s casks to finish a bottle of Filey Bay whisky.

Spirit of Yorkshire owns and operates two of the largest Forsyth pot stills operating in the UK outside of Scotland.

Their way of farming - using cover crops and direct drilling – protects the structure of the soil and keeps carbon beneath the ground to ensure that the barley is the best it can be. No-one else farms for whisky like this.

The distillery overlooks the sea and the curve of Filey Bay, and so their flagship malt was named after their favourite place.

History

One day some time in 2011, best friends Tom and Dave were chatting over a pint: “we’ve got barley on the farm, we’ve got our own water, and we already make great beer.” Whisky was the next logical step. After a lot of due diligence, planning, preparation, and with the help & guidance of the late, great Dr. Jim Swan, they ran the stills and filled the first casks in early summer 2016. Filey Bay First Release was ready in Autumn 2019 and the rest, as they say, is history…
