Yorkshire Whisky Distillery To Host Joint Tasting Event With Sister Brewery

Sibling businesses in North Yorkshire are collaborating to host a unique tasting event later this month.

Yorkshire's first single malt whisky producer, Spirit of Yorkshire will host a beer and whisky pairing event with Wold Top Brewery at its Hunmanby distillery on 20th May.

Throughout the evening, Wold Top's Head Brewer, Alex Balchin and Spirit of Yorkshire's Marketing Brand Ambassador, Libby Barmby will share the journey from the brew house to the still house and will pair the brewery's barrel-aged beer with Filey Bay whiskies.

"Alex will be bringing three outstanding and very special barrel-aged beers to enjoy, including our latest collaboration and newly launched barrel-aged beer, Crest," said Ms Barmby.

"Together we'll discuss and explore why oak, time and maturation are so important for creating great flavour, as well as finding out what makes great beer and whisky."

The Whisky and Beer Pairing event takes place between 7pm and 9pm on 20th May. Tickets cost £30 for five drams of whisky, three samples of barrel-aged beer and bar snacks. They are available by calling 01723 891758 or online at

In addition to live events, visitors to Spirit of Yorkshire can enjoy guided tours of the distillery and home-made refreshments from the Pot Still Coffee Shop seven days a week, all year round.
