At the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, we’re making world class whisky on the Yorkshire Coast of England.
We believe in doing things properly and we’re obsessed with every step of the growing and distilling process, from field to bottle.
We define each part of the whisky creation process ourselves. We choose the variety of barley based on quality. We farm it sustainably, leading the way with our progressive farming techniques. We use 100% homegrown Yorkshire barley in our whisky. We distil by hand and nose. And we source our casks from the very best cooperages around the world.
Mentored by renowned whisky expert, the late Dr. Jim Swan, our instinctive approach is to make a whisky that doesn’t just replicate Scotch. Instead we take the best of tradition and apply new thinking to create truly unique whiskies.
