  1. Kim4Reiner did not rate this distillery Expert Junior

    We took my parents, who live nearby, here for a Christmas treat end of 2019 when the 2nd release was nearly out.  It was already difficult to buy the first release.  The maturing malts also did very well.


    We started in the cafe with a the special high tea with champagne.  The typical English sandwiches and bakery were brought on A-Frame wooden holders with slate trays for the food.  They also supply a good selection of fine ales.  There are windows from the cafe looking direct into the distillery barn.  Lots to watch whilst enjoying the good food and drinks.


    The pot-still distillery tour was also a high-light.  The staff are all very personable (typical Yorkshire).  The most interesting thing we learned was that there is no need to lock the spirit safe in England!  This is law in Scotland though.  Another proof for me that the United Kingdom retained sovereignty within the EU!  Kim


    For anyone visiting East Yorkshire, you can also visit a micro-brewery in Goodmanham run by a former school friend of mine.  She and her husband run the Goodmanham Arms and offer home-made British and Italian food.   :)

    This looks nothing like a distillery from the outside, looks like something you would find in an industrial estate. But it looks very much like a distillery on the inside, all singing all dancing. A shop, cafe and tasting room. The staff were great, all young girls, very friendly and chatty. The young girl who did the tour had only worked there for four months and never worked in a distillery before. She was great, very knowledgeable and enthusiastic.I asked her a lot of questions, most she knew, some she didn't. I told her a lot she didn't know and we had a good chat about things on the way round. They are experimenting with some of their casks. Some they have left outside and one of their sherry casks they have put orange peels in it. At the end you get to taste 3 of their releases. As I was driving I took some large sample bottles down and she filled them right to the top. Over all well worth a visit. All local barley and fist official single malt out in june next year.
