The team at Yorkshire’s first whisky distillery are celebrating after being ranked in the top 10 of the Most Popular Whisky Distilleries in the UK and Ireland.
Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery in Hunmanby was placed seventh in the prestigious list of favourite distilleries that was published by Spirits Business using data compiled by The Cask Connoisseur from reviews, ratings and rankings across Google, TripAdvisor and other social platforms.
Spirit of Yorkshire Co-founder, David Thompson, is delighted that the work that the team has done to deliver an exceptional customer experience has been rewarded with a top 10 ranking: “We’re one of only two English distilleries in this list that was compiled from 231 whisky distilleries across the nations. It’s a tremendous achievement for any distillery, but especially for one that only launched its first whisky in 2019.
“The tour guides and Pot Still Coffee Shop teams are regularly complimented on their passion, enthusiasm and knowledge, as are the distillers for the quality of the whisky, but to receive this formal accolade is amazing and helps to put Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery and Filey Bay single malt on the world whisky map.”
Spirit of Yorkshire is Tripadvisor’s number one of 10 things to do in Hunmanby. 92% of its reviews are five-star and 98% are four and five-star reviews combined.
Spirit of Yorkshire is a true field-to-bottle distillery and one of only a few distilleries that use 100% homegrown barley to produce its single malt whisky available throughout the UK and in many export markets.
