The team at Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky distillery is hosting an Open Day after a two year hiatus.

Spirit of Yorkshire’s Open Day will take place at its distillery in Hunmanby, North Yorkshire between 12 noon and 7pm on Saturday, July 30, and visitors will be able to participate in a host of whisky related activities from tasting sessions and masterclasses to distillery tours, games and competitions.

Spirit of Yorkshire’s director and co-founder, David Thompson said: “Throughout the day, there will be opportunities for visitors to go on a distillery tour, taste our whisky, join in with whisky pairing masterclasses and see the direct drilling farm machinery that is changing the way we grow the barley for our whisky. Visitors will also be among the first to sample and buy Filey Bay Yorkshire Day* 2022 Special Release single malt whisky.

“This year’s masterclasses include pairings with fellow family businesses, Staal Smokehouse, Bullion Chocolate and Shepherds Purse Cheese and a deep dive into Filey Bay whisky with our whisky director, Joe Clark.”
