The team at Yorkshire's first single malt whisky distillery have launched their latest bottling.

Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2 single malt whisky is Hunmanby based Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery's second iteration of a peated whisky.

"The first batch of Filey Bay Peated Finish sold out more quicky than any other Filey Bay finished release, so we're very excited to launch, Filey Bay Peated Finish Batch #2. This bottling is a much anticipated follow up and adds a subtle sweet smokiness with coastal and caramel notes to our light and fruity signature whisky," said Spirit of Yorkshire Whisky Director, Joe Clark.

Spirit of Yorkshire's MD, David Thompson added:
"Primarily matured in first fill bourbon casks laid down in the winter of 2018 before a secondary maturation in specially selected peated casks, this very special whisky brings a taste of the west coast of Scotland to the east coast of Yorkshire.

"As a distillery, we are passionate about pushing the boundaries of whisky making, which is why we are always experimenting with different casks to finish our whisky in. We've had people asking for the return of our Peated Finish ever since the release of Batch #1 sold out, and we're delighted to be able to say that it's back."

Filey Bay Peated Finish, 46% ABV costs £60 and is available from the distillery shop, online at spiritofyorkshire.com and from selected specialist retailers nationwide.

Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery is Yorkshire's first single malt whisky distillery and is one of only a handful of distilleries that grows 100% of the barley used for whisky production. It is a collaboration between farmer and brewer, Tom Mellor from Wold Top Brewery and business partner, David Thompson.
