Ellers farm Distillery is a brand new eco distillery and visitor attraction being built in North Yorkshire.
The distillery, expected to be the largest in the region, will be carbon neutral from day one and aims to support and lead the industry in balancing people, profit, and the planet.
The new state-of-the-art facility, when in full production, will initially be able to produce 1.2 million bottles per annum, with room for expansion. Housing two stills, it will be capable of producing a range of products: vodka, gin, whisky, and liqueurs.
Andy Braithwaite, managing director at Ellers Farm, said: “We’re extremely excited to be building a distillery of this scale in North Yorkshire. From day one, we are committed to being eco-leaders within the spirits industry, and we will consider our impacts on people, profit, and the planet in every action we take.”
“In a time when our news feeds are clogged with issues surrounding climate change, it’s vital that businesses such as ours are proactive in our approach and mitigate our environmental impact from the offset.”
Located near the historic village of Stamford Bridge, the distillery is a multi-million-pound investment set to offer sustainable and diversified employment for the region. A stone’s throw away from Yorkshire’s food capital, Malton, the distillery’s visitor centre will enhance the visitor experience as an aligned tourism asset.
In order to help Ellers Farm deliver on its sustainability and environmental goals, Tabatha Hurst joined the team early in the company’s journey as Head of Sustainability. Along with Tabatha the company has already put together a world-class senior leadership team with a wealth of industry experience, including the likes of Heineken, Diageo, Chase Distillery, Molson Coors and Slingsby Gin.
