    official Info:

    Introducing Filey Bay First Release

    The first expression of Yorkshire's first ever single malt. Made here in Hunmanby on the Yorkshire Coast by us from field to bottle. Representing over eight years of planning and over three years of whisky-making here at the distillery, we are hugely proud to share this first release with you.

    Filey Bay First Release combines our pot and column distillates and has been matured predominantly in first fill bourbon casks with a subtle sherry influence. A selection of just 16 casks laid down in the spring and summer of 2016, carefully chosen from our warehouse and gently married together here at the distillery, yielding just 6000 bottles.

    Natural Colour & Non Chill Filtered.

    Tasting Note

    Creamy, light and fruity, with flavours of vanilla, honey, citrus and caramel.

    70cl. 46% vol.

    This whisky is nice.
    However, if you pay £400 for it you're getting mugged off.
    Edit: £600*

    Very nice whisky,

    Sweet and fruity nose with a definite taste of citrus (orange), vanilla and caramel with a medium nice finish.

    Well worth trying.
