The Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery is an artisanal whisky distillery located in Hunmanby, near the North Yorkshire coast in England. Established in 2016, it is known for its dedication to crafting high-quality single-malt whisky, focusing on local ingredients and traditional methods.
The distillery is particularly noteworthy for its commitment to the “field-to-bottle” philosophy, meaning it oversees the entire whisky production process, from growing its own barley to distillation and maturation. This emphasis on using locally sourced barley reflects a connection to the region’s terroir, giving their whiskies a distinct character.
One of the key features of the distillery is its copper pot stills, where the spirit is carefully distilled to achieve the desired flavours and aromas. Additionally, they utilise a variety of cask types for maturation, contributing to the complexity and depth of their whiskies.
